Red/Orange fire ball, Baseball size with sparks, smoke, and trail.

While driving in my truck going east on I - 76, directly in front of me appeared a rapidly moving red/orange fire ball. It was traveling in a south south westerly direction. It apeared to be baseball size, with a long tail, and it was emmiting a lot of sparks. It was very bright making a smoke trail visible.It was taveling at about a 30 degree angle.I dismissed it as the most spectacular meteor that I have ever seen , untill hearing a lot of people were seeing the same thing on the west coast, on the Art Bell show you were a gust on in mid Dec.
