Huge round fireball heading straight toward the ground at great speed with orange yellow streak trial stopping before it hit the ground

I'm a truck driver out of Arkansas. I Had picked up my load north of San Francisco and was heading to Nashville, TN for delivery. Crossing into Arizona at some point I believe around 9:30 to 10:00 I noticed a huge ball of light fall straight out of the sky toward the ground. I was on my cell phone to my father when it appeared and he shared my experience as did several other vehicals that passed by. I thought it was the end me and everyone as this huge Ball with an orange and yellow trail streaked toward the earth. It was huge! If it was a meteor it would have surely been a global killer. It stoped before it smashed into the ground. I was in shock and my father a 30 year Naval Officer listened as I described what I saw. I stoped the truck parked and started walking toward the object describing what I was seeing to my father: it appeared as a blue perfectly round sphear. Suddenly it seemed to cloak itself blending perfectly into the horizon and desert background. Suddenly there was what appeared to be a bolt of lightning emiting straight up toward the sky from the cloaked object -- that streak stayed for what seemed like several minuets. Finally, a perfect image of a large Blue Whale materialized and seemed to levetate in mid-air. It was at this point that my father told me to go back to the truck and try to confirm what I had seen with other witnesses.
