Massive flash of light preceeding a large fireball falling to the earth

I was travelling West on Hwy 198 just outside of Hanford CA when there was a bright flash of light that illuminated the entire atmosphere, similar to a flash of lightning only more intense.

I looked to the south which was where the flash was brightest to see a fireball falling in a straight line to the earth.

It was a large fireball, with the fire lasting approx. 20 seconds before burning out.

It seemed to be around 20-30 miles away. Please tell me there are others who saw the same thing!
