|Large, bright, white object streaking across the sky, long tail, trailing sparks and pieces od main object.
Witnessed from B-767 at 39,000 ft. We were heading app. 270 degrees. Saw a very bright light at about 11 o'clock just above the horizon. First thought it was another aircraft with lights on. Object was heading in our direction. As it started to pass directly over us I could see a long tail that was trailing, pieces of the main object were breaking off and falling behind in trail. Witnessed by my co-pilot and a flight attendant.
