UFO Sighting in Carlsbad, California on January 7th 2015 – A fireball passed me directly overhead while driving southbound on Hwy 101 and continued directly south over San Diego 30 miles away

I was driving southbound on Highway 101 in Carlsbad, Ca at approximately 9:25 pm, the air was clear and I can see the lights off in the distance of Point Loma near San Diego clearly. I often drive at night along the beaches to check the surf. A red glowing object flew directly over my car. I thought that it was a meteorite because of the brightness and the way that it seemed to blur as it moved across the sky flying directly southbound along highway 101. I was driving at a speed of 50 miles per hour and I assumed that it would burn out seconds after I saw it, but it did not, it continued on, in a straight trajectory, not losing any altitude.
The next thought that I had was that it was going as fast as a missile and, living in Oceanside, Ca near Camp Pendleton, it may have come from there. My confusion turned to concern, knowing that it had no other flashing lights like the jets that land at Carlsbad Airport or the commercial jets that fly southbound along the coast over the ocean. The only other aircrafts that fly along the coast above the land are the police helicopters that fly over head at times, but mostly over the water.
I continued following it down the coast, rarely taking my eyes off of it so as to keep my car on the road. The light was very bright at first, like a meteorite, bigger than Venus when you can see it on a clear night and it���s closest to the earth. I had kept my eyes on it for about 2 minutes when I saw that it had seemed to be flying over the Sea World tower, approximately 30 miles away. I had reached Leucadia and couldn���t see past the cliffs at this point but at my last view it had traveled far enough so the light was just a speck in the distance.
In my approximations, the light was about 1000 feet off the ground and traveling at a speed faster than the F15s from Miramar Air Force Base. 30 miles in 2 minutes would equal about 900 miles per hour. I felt a bit confused as to who to call, so I remembered that on UFO shows, people report sightings to their local police department. i called the Encinitas Sherrif Dept and they gave me the number to the FAA to call and report it. The number turned out to be the National UFO Reporting Center. My biggest concern was that it may have been a terrorist missile and with San Diego being a military center, I would have thought that there would be some kind of F15 type flights trying to figure out what was flying so low. but nothing came around for over half an hour then a police helicoptor flew overhead making it’s usual rounds of the coast.
