Meteor seen in NYC midnight sky

At about 12:05 A.M. Sunday morning, February 27, 2005, I witnessed what I consider to have been a meteor 'fall' from the sky and disintegrate. My location is Staten Island, NY. The location of the 'fireball' was approximately, south - southeast. It was as bright as a star but about four times the size. This bright ball, somewhat mottled, suddenly appeared and made a diagonal path (about a 90 degree angle) through the midnight sky from right to left. From my perspective, it traveled on this downward path for about a length of 9 cm. then disintegrated.
