Large fireball, descending over Whidbey Island in Western sky

Large fireball, descending from just north of due east to just south of due west; size: +/- 25% of full moon in diameter; color: white and red (not orange, but very red); some tail of sparks following. It was far too high in sky to have been fireworks. Seen from my study window, which looks due west out over Saratoga Passage toward Holmes Harbor on Whidbey Island. I operate a small retreat house on Camano Island.
