A golden fireball in free fall west of Maui

Standing on my balcony, looking at the western sky, I heard feint thunder, then a golden fireball fell out of sky 20 degrees above the, straight down, maybe into the ocean.

This is not what asteroids or shooting stars typically do.

At the horizon my sight was obstructed with trees and buildings. I saw a flash. Odd.
