i saw a large bolide like object that brightly flased and then dissapeared

I saw what I believe was a bolide or something similar. I was looking at the stars when a large, bright object lit up the sky. It was so bright, it lit up our pool deck as well.

My wife was with me and although she did not see the object, she saw the pool deck lite up when the object "exploded". It was traveling very fast from east to west in what appeared to be relatively straight across the sky: it did not seem to be falling.

It looked like a large comet like object with a large, long tail.

I observed it only for a few seconds when it suddenly flashed a very bright light as if it exploded. Then it seemingly disappeared. I did not notice any falling debris or smaller objects coming from it after it flashed.
