Location: Reno, NV
Shape: Circle
Duration:10 sec.
object moved west-northwest for about 10 sec. very white color, sparks flew from behind

I didn't think of this as anything more than a meteor, albeit a strange one. It was large enough for me to notice that it was a disk or spherical shaped object. My attention was drawn to the window next to my bed, where it moved slowly enough for me to notice its size and color. What threw me were the "sparks" that flew off the back, and the sort of "wavy" outline of the disk. I live just north of Reno, in Stead, NV--just 10 miles from the California border.
