Large glowing object descending at a steep angle crashes into Gulf of Mexico, West of Tampa Bay,FL

My wife and I were out in our back yard, looking at Venus, when my wife happened to look to the West, and shouted for me to look. I turned just in time to see a bright round object descending at a steep angle from North to South across the western sky. It appeared to be very large and changed colors from purple to green to red to yellow and finally to white as it disappeared behind the trees. We live a short distance from the coast, and from my estimation it landed/crashed into the Gulf of Mexico somewhere West of the Tampa Bay area.

((FOLLOW-UP COMMUNICATION))

Yes, it was Friday morning at 5:45am, I had noticed how big Venus appeared to be, and had called my wife outside to show her. (She was getting ready for work) and she happened to look West and yelled for me to look.
