Facing south East to West Big bright fireball with long tail As big as a soft ball at arms length.

Initial Meteor Sighting Reports-
At 12:34 am, Oct 28, 2013 Tuesday. Small red fireball streaked over my house going from West to East. The streak was red and was rather low and then sparked out. My description would be as if someone threw a hot charcoal from the grill and then busted apart in the Atmosphere. I remember thinking that as soon as it happened. It wasn't glowing green in appearance as one other I saw many years ago over Asheboro, NC.
I live in Kernersville, NC.
Sincerely, BC
Thank You BC!
