it looked like a slug on fire in the sky

about 9:00 when the sun was setting i was in the parking lot of target eating my dinner and i looked up at the sky and saw something in the sky coming from north and looked to be going north west it looked like fire crossing the sky, if you put your pinky or ring finger up to the sky thats about the thikness it was (the fire) and in the sky in looked about 2-2 1/2 inches long and it looked like there was something in front of it maybe like a rock or something kind of odd shaped and there could have been a space between this and the fire but im not sure. there was absuloutly no sound from it and also no kind of vapor trail or anything behind it. it kind of looked like a slug on fire across the sky it took about 5 minutes before it was just like a red little streak and then it was gone, my boyfriend came out of the store and saw it when it was just a little streak and thought it was a missle but he dident see it when it was big. i think it looked like something that had fallen into the atmosphere. but thats my story it totally triped me out because i have never seen anything like that before.
