If you saw it, then it was likely 100 miles away and still high up in the atmosphere.
If it landed in your back yard you would have seen nothing - but the crater would be a give away.
Be wary - meteorites are very cold

small meteorites quit glowing about 5 to 10 miles up and as they fall they go Ballistic and are falling straight down by the time they approach the surface. They also hit earth at free fall speed (Terminal velocity)not cosmic speeds of about 5000mph
The ones that don't go Ballistic and have a fireball all the way down and hit the surface at a angle are so massive they leave large craters.
