Fireball over 127/321 area near Mtn View!

Was traveling northbound 127 merging onto hwy 321 when we noticed a ball of fire that appeared very close to the ground and had an erratic smoke trail to it of what almost appeared to be like a plane was crashing and the pilot may have been trying to get control!

It was a very distinct fireball and I went back to take a picture of it but it was gone!

Never seen anything like it and I know others in this vacinity had to have seen it too!
