Blue/white light streaks across western horzion

While driving north down 102nd we noticed a bright light streaking from the south heading north on the western horizon. It was bright with blue hue in it and with a long tail (blue white) and was brighter than the sunset. We surmised that it must have been a comet, but later looked for any evident of any comet reports within the area and there was none. We watched it for another 5-8 minutes as it disappeared to the north. We didn’t think to video it until the last 15 seconds which only shows a small white light disappearing off to the north.

We watched all news cast, online reports, and any pre-comet/asteroid events to no avail.
