Circular flaming falling object in Eastern sky

I was out feeding my horses....left the house at approximately 11:20 PM,was watching the sky like I always do because meteors and UFOs (IFOs too)are very common here .In the Eastern sky I watched a purple/blue circular object fall(the size of a full moon,perhaps a tad smaller)...behind it were orange/red flames coming off of it like fire works . The siting was unusual enough that I expected a huge noise and/or the entire town of Centerville,WA to explode upon impact .Instead the thing vanished...I assume that I saw one hell of a meteor(and as you are aware ,we had a spectacular meteor siting about a month ago here...)or a saucer crash .I would love to know if anyone else was lucky enough to see what I saw.My horses were compelled enough to stop eating their alfalfa and look behind them at the light that the object threw. Thanks....
