Brilliant Orange Fireball

As my usual routine I was sitting in my hot tub on my deck late at night. I had been in the hot tub about 10 minutes when exactly at 3:15am, 9/10/99, I saw an orange fireball (I ran in the house after the sighting and checked the clock). The sky was crystal clear, and my view was not impeded by trees or any other obstructions. I was gazing at the nighttime sky when what can best be describe as a fireball suddenly appeared. It was a very brilliant orange color, with a long tapered segmented tail. It was not crossing the sky like a meteor, but was heading straight down. I heard no noise associated with this fireball, not even the sound of wind. Three seconds later it disappeared as if it was never there to begin with. ((personal data deleted))
