Comet-like ball of fire that could have ben a jet airliner exploding.

We were sitting by our garage doors enjoying the night and watching airplanes overhead when this spectacular comet-like ball of fire went streaking overhead in a Dallas to New york direction. All of a sudden it exploded, like the challenger shuttle did some years ago. It left a large trail of smoke high in the sky for hours afterwards. Afterwards we saw jets flying in this same direction. If it was a comet, it sure was close to earth's atmosphere and exploded coming through the atmosphere.

It was the biggest comet-like thing we have ever seen. It was breath-taking. We think it possibly was a jet airliner that was on fire and then exploded all of a sudden. We heard no sound with this. Are there any other reports of this sighting?
