Saw what appeared to be a meteor in night sky.

Monday, Oct 12th 2015, I saw what appeared to be a beautiful meteor fly through the sky. I was at a local track stargazing at around 11:12 PM when this happened. It was a large fiery ball with a trail of light that flew nearly directly over me and disappeared behind trees to my right. It was beautiful. But no one else in my area has seemed to have witnessed it. It seemed to be very close to earth, or either it was very large. It wasn't your average shooting star. It appeared to be well within our atmosphere.
