Fireball observed Tuesday, Dec 7, 2004 in Chattanooga, Tennessee

From my front yard in Chattanooga, TN, I observed a large fireball moving Southeast to Northwest at approximately 5:30 PM on Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2004, I casually looked up and it caught my immediate attention as it was approximately the size of a street light, but much brighter, and a red tail streaking behind it. Within 7-8 seconds the fireball changed to what appeared as a round object and then disappeared from view.
