saw huge "falling star"

I went to retrieve groceries from my car. It's very dark in the driveway, no street light. I can see lots of stars for being in town. From NE to SW a huge "falling star" flashed across my upper perihelial vision, since I wasn't looking directly into the sky. It had a large "misty aura" around it. About the size of my fist at arm's length. No sound as it disappeared behind the tall hill beside "Castlerock" (lava outcrop). I don't know what I saw but it didn't leave the Feeling in me that it was actually a meteorite - mostly because of that huge glow.
