Flaming Fireball The Size of a Building Over Island

Standing outside center of island facing West, HUGE fireball the size of a house comes flying over my right shoulder from the East, parallel to the gulf. I was on the phone and I screamed. It was definitely in our atmosphere, at an altitude of around 15,000 feet. I was prepared to hear a catastrophic boom, but I never heard a point of contact. It was flaming and hundreds of thousands of times larger than any shooting star I see here regularly.
