lokin E, trvin N 2 S. 45 deg up, 60deg long.started as cylinder white/blue then stoped for 1/2 sec then 8 little spheres apeared insame line for 2 sec then burned out. SPACE JUNK

Looking E , saw what appeared to be metorite travling N to S. Looking up at about 45 deg. and following the object for about 60 deg left to right for about 15 sec. Object was about the size a 1/2 dollar could cover at arms lenght. It was white/blue with a small trail behind, the object had a glow around it. At the of the 60 deg it flashed out, then 8 small spheres appeared following the same path as the large object was on. They were brite white and lasted for about 2 sec more, then disappeared completely. The night was very clear, very little light pullution. I think this was Space Junk , I have seen alot of meteorites and a few pieces of junk reentering before, I do know what aircraft look like and what they can &can not do. This is why I beleive it was Space Junk.
