A golden fireball in free fall west of Maui

Standing on my balcony, looking at the western sky, I heard feint thunder, then a golden fireball fell out of sky 20 degrees above the horizon...free-fall, straight down, maybe into the ocean.

This is not what asteroids or shooting stars typically do.

At the horizon my sight was obstructed with trees and buildings. I saw a flash. Odd.
