FIREBALL IN CLEAR SKY

I WAS OUTSIDE WORKING OUT AND SAW A FIREBALL TRAVELED OVERHEAD AT FAST BUT VISIBLE SPEED. THE SKY WAS CLEAR WITH STARS VISIBLE. THE FIREBALL WAS WHITE COLOR ENGULFED IN ORANGE / REDDISH FIRE STREAKS. IT TRAVELED FROM NORTH TO SOUTH AND WAS RATHER LOW TO BE VISIBLE BUT SILENT. PROBABLY TRAVELED ONE MILE PER SECOND. I GOT UP TO SEE WHERE IT WAS GOING TO THINKING IT WOULD FALL SOMEWHERE AND CRASH WITH A BOOM BUT DISAPPEARED TO THE HORIZON WITH NO SOUND. PRIVATE SMALL AIRPLANES FROM THE AIRPORT NEARBY WERE PASSING BY AND I WONDERED IF THEY HAD SEEN SOMETHIING. I WONDERED IF IT WAS A BURNING OBJECT SUCH AS A SATELLITE OR SOMETHING THAT WAS CRASHING. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IF OTHER PEOPLE SAW THIS AND HAVE AN EXPLANATION. THANK YOU.
