white fireball round-like orb of light

I was leaving a nightclub on 27 West Eau Claire Street and was walking East on Eau Claire Street at around 12:45 AM. As I was walking, I looked up into the sky and noticed a very bright white fireball quietly streak across the midnight sky coming from the West direction heading East. I had never seen a fireball streak across so low to the ground as this. I watched closely to see if it would hit any buildings. I estimate it was traveling at a very high speed and did leave fireball dust behind and its elevation was about 750 feet above me.

I watched it travel for about 1 1/2 minutes. It kept a straight path and never fizzled out. It was traveling alone and not accompanied by any military aircraft.

I waited and to see if another fireball was coming as well. I am still uncertain if this was a UFO or a meteor but I will say that I was amazed.
