fireball came out of northern sky toward the south and vanished

it was a clear starlit night. i was out looking at comet neat in the western sky. all of sudden a fireball or meteor appeared from my right the northern sky at 45 degrees and traveled horizontally to the south and disappeared. i already had my binoculars focused in that direction and had an instant to look at it before it vanished. it looked like a red fireball and it left a quick shower of burning red debris in its tail.
