Burning object spotted over the Las Vegas strip

I initially commented on this "object" being the moon, but partially covered by some sort of cloud or something, until we saw the "object" getting brighter. At that point, my first instinct was that it was an airplane blowing up in the sky. I work for an airline and thought it had to be a plane of some sort blowing up in the sky. The "object" appeared to burn for a short period of time (5-15 seconds) and then it appeared to completely burn out, leaving 2 trails of smoke behind. We saw nothing after this. I have heard nothing of the sighting on the local or national news, radio, newspaper or in conversation.
