slow moving object changed colors from violet to white to transparent except for a spot in the center that was constant

I am a 32 yr old male in good health with good eyesight. I was working on a house in green park, MO. near south county on 10-9-2008 around 5pm I looked up and saw what appeared to be a semi-clear spherical object moving/falling in the northeastern part of the sky. It had a oblong dot in the center and what looked like wavy lines changing shapes inside, the lines looked like electricity they changed color from violet to white and then dissapeared. The spot in the center was the only constant. I am not sure the object was spherical as it seemed to change shape, the lines were the only thing I could see making a shape. I could see no outside edges. The object moved slowly as if drifting.I lost sight of the object when it passed the horizon of the roof of the house. I ran to the other side of the house but could no longer see the object.
