Orange fireball over Gaithersburg MD on 04/12/2012

When I was walking my dog before bed time around 10:30pm-11:00pm, I saw an orange fireball with tail flying from south east to north west in the sky. It flew with high speed that I was not able to see clearly. It was definitely not an airplane. It was pretty low and disappeared behind the distant trees. I thought it was going to crash to the earth and waited for the sound from the explossion. But nothing happened. Anybody else saw it?
