SHOOTING FLASHBALL appears from nowhere and disappears.

At the time i saw this thing flying in the sky i was talking to my friend. Although i was look at my friend while we were having a conversation i behind him, a quick flash/fireball type of shot out of nowhere. There were some other people around which i immediately made it known that i saw something. However they were all facing my side. I know it wasnt my imagination because as soon as it left, it left this white strip of smoke or cloud for 1 or 2 seconds before even that was gone. My eyes adjusted to the smoke and that was what indicated that i dind't imagine this.

One thing which i found was very weird was that it dind't come from somewhere, it just appread and went somewhere in like 1/10 of a second.

I thought maybe it was lightening, or maybe it was some kind of rocket but i never heard anything, and it dind't rain either. It could have been a shooting star, but the object itself was way to big. This was after midnight at around 1:45am and i am sure that eventhough it was very late, there must have been one or two people who witnessed the same thing in Ridgewood Queens, or better to say Glandale queens.
