What was over Texas 5-3-01

I was driving west on I20, on the NW sky I noticed a falling star. I looked directly at it and realized it wasn't a falling star. It was larger, yellow, and didn't burn out. Also, it was still daylight. It had a tail, was very high, and fast. It turned, and was flying away from me then. It was a large light that got smaller and smaller until it disappeared. There were many other people on the highway, people coming home from work. Someone else must have seen this. I've been looking for any news articles and information to explain this. I am just trying to find a logical answer.

((NUFORC Note: We, at first, suspected that the report might address the re-entry event of space debris on Saturday, 01DE01. However, if people were returning from work, it may not have been a Saturday. Please see other reports for the same date. PD))
