Blue-white fire ball over Durham

Driving home on Hwy 147 towards Hillsborough, saw a large blue-white falling ball with a blue-white tail 2 1/2 times as large as object out of passenger side window. Looked like it could be a comet, but color was wrong. It looked close by, falling towards earth then it was gone. It appeared to be about 1/4 mile away.

Went home thinking I would see somthing about it on the news, because many people were sure to have seen it. Nothing was ever mentioned about it.
