Default Fire in the sky

As i was driving home today, I was heading West on 98 between destin and Ft Walton I saw a pretty good sized fire streaking North. It may have been around Okaloosa Island but not exactly sure. Anyone out there know what this was?

I've seen meteorites streaking through the sky while flying -- some appearing so close that I thought you could see pieces comig off of it. I suspect they were actually many miles farther away than they appeared. It is more common than you might think -- but not as easily seen during a bright sunny day like we had today.

I saw it too. We were driving up on I-10 around 6:15 or 6:30 and saw it. I dont think it was a meteor. It almost looked like fireworks
