Long Lasting Fireball blazes accross Sacramento Sky

Was in my boat on Sacramento River near Confluence with American River when in the skies to our North we saw an amazing rectangular fireball which seemed to project light behind it as it went by. Suddenly, after4 or 5 minutes of watching in fascination, it appeared that the fireball blew up or dissolved. The light was still light blue for about 10 minutes after in the area where the light had been projecting. The most amazing thing any of us had ever seen.
