I think I might have just seen it. Within the last 20 minutes (11:15
EST) I saw a pretty big meteor, probably the biggest I've seen, but I
don't think it was a bolide. Fireball yes.

I saw it in the western sky almost directly over head heading NW from
SE. It lasted about 2 seconds. Flared up, burnt out and left a smoke
trail I could see for a few seconds afterward. No Sound. Magnitude -7.
Freeland MD.

I was photographing M3 at the time.
