Very large fireball flew over house. No loud noise, just a faint "whoosh" as it passed. Very quick.

I was up watching a meteor shower. I had only seen one or two and I was about to go to bed, when I saw a very large fireball fly very quickly directly over my house. It seemed to be very close to the ground. It traveled quickly behind a building and I lost track of it. Object was orange with what seemed to be a faint tail. It seemed to be either very large or very close to the ground, maybe both. I observed it for a maximum of four seconds. This was unlike anything I had ever seen before, and I know it wasn't a meteor. I was a little shook up afterwards. Hope this information is useful. Thank you.
