comet asteroid tumblng appearance changing shape to a cone or capsule shape hovering above freeway 58

comet asteroid tumbing through atmosphere leaving long tail of orange sparks the objectcame to a control stop abut a hundred feet from the ground and just hoverd for awile I quikly grabbed my binoculars just as a semi driver pulled up side and he jumped out of his truck .We both watched the object cooled down and no longer had its first descrption but took on the shape of a con or capsel shape then it manuvered itself by several small blue jets located on the bottom edges Also thecapsul seemed to be covered with rectanguler panels sort of simular to the shuttles heat protectors for re-entering our atmosphere.These gave the craft a dark brown grey color. The craft seemed to be quite large about abot the size of a football field. watched it manuvered for several minutes then it tilted on its side and was fastly disappearing until it was just another dim faint star like the other stars that night
