Huge fireball with a firey tail shooting across the sky

I was at my kitched sink looking out the window when I saw a HUGE fireball shooting across the sky. It had a tail and although I thought I'd hear a crask, I didn't. It just disappeared or burned up. I seemed really close, the closest shooting star I ever saw.

((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor. PD))
