Fireball that just disappears

We were standing outside, looking at the stars and I was commenting on how low the clouds were blocking the view. We were looking in a north, northwest direction when a fireball appeared traveling northwest, almost in a slight angle. It was bright red with a long tail. As quickly as it appeared, it disappeared. It just went black. It didn't appear to have crashed into the ground as it went black above the horizon. It could have just disappeared in the clouds, but the clouds didn't seem to be that thick to me. It was an amazing sight and what perfect timing to be looking in that particular direction at that very second!
