Fireball seen in rual Riverside Iowa

Around 5:30pm myself and 2 family members were walking from the house to the car when we heard what sounded like electricity cracking through the sky.

My daughter pointed to the south and about 500-600 feet in the sky was this orange-red fireball type object screaming through the air.

As it went over our home it set the car alarms off and our horses were trying to jump the gates. We noticed shortly after that our cell phones had shut off too .
