Bright bluish white light moving north, then east, leaving bluish trail behind, rolling over and disappeared....

I am a UFO skeptic. I have an Assoc. degree in Science and Bachelors Degree in Nursing. I am a 53 year old grandmother of 5. I do not know exactly what I saw. I could not sleep this night. I stepped outside onto the patio facing south. I looked up thinking to myself that the stars were so bright and pretty. I also remarked allowed to myself "Well Lord, the stars are still in the sky". At that moment I saw what I thought at first to be a falling star. However, what at first appeared to be a star, was extremely bright bluish white. It appeared to be coming directly at me very fast, then turned east while at the same time coming closer. Then, all of a sudden the 'star' grew in size, appearing like an irregular oval-shaped rock, still bright, but appearing to be sort of 'bumping' going slightly up an down, slightly losing speed, toppling/rolling over, and leaving behind a bluish white trail (similar to a chem trail). Then the object disappeared instantaneously. I stood there trying to memorize exactly what I saw. My first analysis was that it was probably a meteor/asteroid? I also expected to hear something about a meteor thumping into some farmers field. Nothing. So thought I would report what I observed, hoping perhaps that someone else saw the same thing.
