Fireball in sky over Westminster MD, Dec 3, 2015, straight edged bottom to it

I was driving east on route 140 (just leaving Westminster, MD) at 8:12pm EST and I saw a white fireball cross the sky 30 degrees above the horizon on the drivers side of my car. It left a long trail in the dark sky.

I was passing the local Starbucks and Taco Bell when I saw it. It was about 30 degrees in the sky, heading away from me.

The fire ball streaked across the sky then flamed out. Visually it looked like one half of it burst into flames because it was half a ball of flame and the bottom half looked like someone put a straight edge ruler to it and the bottom half was dark. I couldn't see an object, just the weird effect of a straight edged glowing object flaming out.
