White Fire ball over Lakeside.

Faceing North at Appx 20:00,witnessed bright white ball of light travel from Southwest to Northeast in a decending arc,object appeared to disintigrate during decent,it also had long tail also bright white.What was odd was the fact the sun had not set,yet the object was a very bright,phosphorus.It was very reminiscent of Space shuttle disaster during re-entry with multiple debri seperating from object.I have spent many years as a crew chief in the Air Force and built and tested cruise missles at General Dynamics,and with the exception of Space Shuttle had not witnessed anything similar.
