Did not see a craft, just a bursting brilliant meteor shower, several chunks of debris came from it. This was a natural phenomenon. Lasted a long time. Suspect large object "bounced" off the uppermost atmosphere, as it NEVER hit the ground, only traveled across the sky, going from a south westerly direction to the north east. Left a noticeable vapor trail, with vapor spots, where the pieces finally burned up and fizzled. It stayed bright, and towards the north it began to glow dimmer, finally going out. The object did not seem to fall, only seemed to cross the sky.
