fireball as big as truck in San Diego

I saw this light outside my house at 23:00 hrs. I started calling my wife to come outside and see this fireball at aprox.200 feet away.The light was right above a light post and started moving towards another post closer to my house,I can say that it was as big as my astro van it flashed to very bright yellow and white for instants and then back to a redish -orange color just like the light that a flare will produce;It was oval and had a transparent,olmost invisible cilindrical shape on top of it,at this point it was closer,aprox.50 or 60 feet away and very close to the top of the light post,it stayed there for half minute and did the colors flashing thing several times,me and my youngest son were there,it started to go away and than my other son and wife came out to see this,the young one took two pictures,the light went away but we saw it divide in two parts far in the distance.After we saw the pictures in my computer the image taken was very different from what we saw in the sky. All there is a filament of light like a worm or a flying snake of light.
