Yellow Orangish fireball observed over Emerald Isle, NC

At approximately 11:45pm, while sitting on the deck of a beach front property on Emerald Isle, NC, I observed a yellow orangish sphere/fireball in the SSE sky that was pulsing different diameters/brightness as it descended through slighly cloudy conditions at an 80ish degree angle down into the ocean.

Event lasted 5-8 seconds, and was estimated to be several miles out to sea.
