Large fireball traveling to the ESE at 22:00 on September 8 in Southeast Louisiana

At approximately 22:00 CST ((sic. CDT)), a round yellowish white object moved very rapidly from WNW to ESE and disappeared below the eastern horizon. I was looking to the NE at the constellation Casseiopia and spotted it directly overhead. I am not sure of the size but it was at least 20-100 times larger than an aircraft traveling in roughly the opposite direction at the same time.
