Large red/yellow fireball seen low in the horizon over Houston, TX area

20:10 PM 7 Sept 11 Friendswood, TX 77546 I was walking down the street and happened to look at the clear, dark sky. Stars were just starting to be visible. I was surprised to see a large ball of light moving from South to North at an approximately 30 degree angle in front of me. It was moving slowly from right to left as I was facing it. It seemed to be a large round fireball of a red and yellow color with a large red and yellow tail creating no sound. I was able to see it for about 5 seconds before it disappeared behind some trees and a house. I had never seen anything like it except in pictures. All the falling/shooting stars I have seen have always been high in the sky, much smaller, and of a white or blue color.
