Arbroath UK - Large fireball type object disappears over the North Sea

We were in a taxi on the way from Dundee to Arbroath (Scotland UK) at approx. 2.30am this morning when we saw a large rectangular shape which looked like a fireball. Red, orange and white light.It was a lot bigger than any other object I have seen in the sky at night, meteor, planes etc.

It was heading from the west and travelled eastwards in a straight line for 3 to 4 sec and disappeared over the North Sea. It was a relatively clear night with patchy clouds so the object was very clearly seen.

Surely someone else in the local area must have seen it because it was huge!
