Large fireball spotted over Nevada

I was looking to the east, when I noticed a very bright white object in the sky, heading east. I got my binnoculars to get a better look, and it looked as if it were something coming through and burning in the atmosphere. I could vaguely make out a small dark spot at the front core, but the rest of it looked like a huge fireball with "tails" or "trails" coming from either side. I watched it continue to travel to the east until it went behind the clouds. I am not saying it was a flying saucer, because it didn't look like one... no metal object, just a huge fireball.

I am just curious as to what it was, if anyone has information.
