Shape: Fireball

Fireball moving across the sky

My daughter and I went outside to see neighbors setting off fireworks. I looked to the north and saw a very bright "fireball" heading west. We frequently see night launches of rockets from Kennedy Space Center, and while this was similar, it seemed closer and it was heading the wrong way. (The rockets always arch up and to the east.) This seemed to be moving about the same speed and had that same look as a rocket, but larger and brighter. It got progressively smaller and and more dim. I assume it was going higher and/or moving further away. Could have been some sort of military aircraft, but there was only one, we could hear no noise and there isn't a military base near here.
