Blue Light Ball Thing followed by fire or spark streaks, west of Highlands Ranch, Colorado.

I'm a 25 year old Male. I'm a professional computer geek; doing I.T. and website design. I was outside walking to the house from my car and noticed the sky light up. It was a bright blueish light followed by a trail of orange sparks or fire. It lasted just for a few seconds, and I paused and listened expecting an explosion as whatever it was hit the ground. I'm near C-470 and Lucent Blvd and this was to the West of me, possibly over the mountains. At 10 pm, our local news had a story about the Space shuttle so I went to nasa's site and saw that the landing wasn't until the 29th; so that ruled that out. I went to Art Bell's site to find your number/website and saw the Iridium satellite flare page, looked up the flares for the day and ruled that out as well. Whatever it was, it sure looked like it could have been low in altitude. Like I said, I was waiting to hear a crash.
