Firey UFO over Unincorporated Saint Peters

I was standing outside my home in Saint Peters and was disturbed by the entirety of my immediate surroundings being lit from above. What I saw above was definitely fire-y, and it gave the same sort of impression when it lit the ground and house below and behind me. It WAS CLOSE. The sky is overcast tonight and it was between me and the clouds. It swept over my house from the east and down toward the west. It was most certainly aflame, and glowed a yellowish orange color and moved incredibly fast. It felt so close that I thought that it certainly had crashed into the neighborhood behind my house, but when I followed it back into the subdivision I found nothing. There was no sound that I can remember. but I do remember feeling a rush of wind. There were a black sedan on my street corner stopped at the time, though I did not manage to talk to the people inside.
