Fireball explodes in West Palm Beach night sky

At first it resembled an airplane, (a red dot in a black, cloudless sky), but it moved from the north to the southeast very quickly, and became more red and brilliant as it approached. After about 25 seconds, it looked as though it had a flame behind it, and then suddenly exploded like a puff of red smoke or a tiny firework. There was no residual smoke - only a bright flash and outward poof - and then nothing at all. At one point it looked as though it was heading right for us. I would say it was about two to three miles away when it exploded. There was no sound. Freaked us all out.
