fireball falling from the sky

was sitting by bonfire outside with friend and son. my son noticed it first and said wow. lookin to the north we all noticed a fireball coming down from the sky at about a 45 degree angle. the night air became lit up as a illumination grenade going off. the fireball was like hot magesium with muliple sparks coming off the main ball of fire before it was gone. it lasted for about twelve seconds. never have i ever seen something that close up before. the night was clear with no visible aircraft in the area
