This is likely a meteor, known as a "Shooting star" by many. Tiny meteors up to several inches in diameter burn in the Earth's atmosphere every few minutes, more often than most think. Objects up to the size of one meter (3 feet) hit the earth every few months producing brilliant displays. This meteor was likely 1-2 feet in diameter.
