Mother's Day Night Fireball!

May 11, 2008 11PM Tulsa, OK At appr. 11pm, Central, I was in my bedroom looking out the window to the north. I saw a fireball with a short tail streak from the upper right to the lower left part of my field of view...towards the horizon. I would guess that it was moving to the northwest from a great distance away but I can't be sure.

This thing was BRIGHT and made a swooshing sound.........like something out of a movie. As quickly as it burned out, it still lit up the yard and the bedroom like daylight. It appeared white with a slight yellow tinge to it.

It did not change directions from what I could tell so I am sure it was just space junk or a slow meteor. I am most curious to know if anyone else saw it because I can't find anything online to corroborate what I saw. I have searched for ""Tulsa fireball, UFO, space debris, etc. Nothing.
