comet looking object seen on NW side of San Antonio TX at 10:19pm 1/21/10

I was driving from Bandera road down mainland about ¼ Mile away from Tezel road. As I was driving I looked up in the upper right hand corner of my windshield and I saw what looked like a shooting star or some type of firework. I have seen shooting stars before but they always look so far away. What stood out to me was this shooting star scared me because it appeared so close, it seemed to be a few blocks ahead of me. It kind of looked like fire work show or comet but is didn’t have a long tail. However I could see clearly that it was shooting in a downward direction in a way that I have never seen a firework do. It also seemed to be too large to be any type of firework. Basically it looked like a cylinder shape fire ball that shot down the sky and disappeared before it hit the ground. It was the strangest thing I have ever seen and at this moment I think I either saw a comet, shooting star or a UFO,
