A round ball of light whizzed past me in the early morning

I was walking my dog on Main St. Port Jefferson, NY on this date. A clear early morning illuminated by a very bright full moon.
I was across the street from the quiet ferry terminal and at the edge of the LI Sound.

A white ball of light flew from west to east over my right shoulder. It was at a low altitude and may have been climbing?
It seemed to break into 3rds and disintegrated or simply vanished.

I heard a faraway sizzling sound which led me to believe it may be space junk or a chunk of rock?
It was not a flare & had no trail. It was at least as big as a bowling ball but hard to judge in such a short time.
