Bright slowly moving comet-like object in Countryside Clearwater

At approximately 5:45 a.m. on October 17, 2016, I was walking my dog in the Brookfield neighborhood of Countryside and I saw a bright bluish white light/object traveling slowly (average walking speed) towards me from across the street. The object had a round body and a tail like a comet. It was about the size of a baseball/softball and its tail was about twice as long as its body. It was flying at rooftop height. Then it stopped about 2 houses in front of me. The tail disappeared and the bottom side of the body turned a beautiful dark red and then the light/object was gone. It did not make any sound. It was still quite dark outside so I was not able to investigate. I intend to look for some evidence later this afternoon.
