Large White Fireball disappears behind Estrella mountains

I was sitting on my balcony tonight, talking on the phone when I noticed a large white ball type of light that appeared closer than the planes flying towards Skyharbor airport. There are a lot of stars out tonight, but this was closer. The light caught my eye because of its size and it was pulsating, then out of nowhere, it fell straight down until it disappeared behind the Estrella mountain range.

When it was falling it looked like a white fireball with a fat white tail, not that of a shooting star that arcs with a thin tail.
