Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 minutes
bright line headed towards ground for half minute then stopped and grew wider and fuzzier

In the eastern sky I saw what looked like plane heading downward and there was a whale-shaped cloud outline formation above it. After it left a thin well-defined trail for about 30 seconds it stopped and the trail got wider and fuzzier.

The whole display glowed in the pre-dawn sky for about 10 minutes. I thought it might have been a meteor but was wondering if anyone else saw it.
