fireball over Dallas

It seemed more like a meteorite, or a fireball than a craft, but I thought I'd report it just in case. It was heading North, and we were looking to the east from Garland TX (basically Dallas). The front was a big orange and red fireball followed by a blue and green tail, bigger than a comet's tail. I thought at first some one was shooting off fire works close by till I realised the distance and apparent speed, and then I thought it was a big meteor and when it went behind the trees, my friend and I both waited a second, holding our breaths, for the impact. It seemed really close. Then I said, do you know how few people get to see something that cool?
