I observed a fireball coming from the western sky parrallel to the ground going east with fire trail behind it.

I was north bound on Pennirile Parkway between 54 and 63 milemarkers just south of Ky 370 highway. I and 2 other drivers were visiting on our CB radios when the 2 drivers in front of me 1/2 and 1 mile respectfully, said look at the object in the sky. Asked where I could not yet see it. After I traveled approx. 1 mile I came out from behind a wooded area and there it was, huge alternating red and orange ball of fire on my left. Flying at least 100 mph toward the east. The tail was changing in length and intensity as it went over the highway in front and above me. Approx. 1000 to 2000 feet off the ground. It appeared to have something maybe burned up debris being set free of the tail and falling. After I had traveled A least 2 miles the object went out of sight, as I looked back to the road I saw a sign for Ky 370 highway. It was a clear evening chilly but not cold, no fog. The above time was CST time.
