Spectacular day-time meteor or satellite re-entry

On my way to work at about 9:23 AM, looking directly north, clear skies, I saw either a meteor or a satellite re-entry with approx. a 70 degree entry angle. What makes this report-worthy was it's brightness and clearity ( it looked close) and the fact that it was seen from high in the sky to the horizon without loosing any intensity. A land impact of this object would not suprise me.
