SUMMARY: Object breaking up above western oklahoma

At 3:35am Central time over S.W. Oklahoma a bright object came from the north about 30 degrees above the eastern horizon moving rather slow. It was breaking up into several small pieces in about 15-20 pieces and burning a bright blue and white. It continued across the sky until invisable into the south. The surrounding light was hindering a good view of the object shape.I am a amature star gazer and I have seen the space shuttle reenter at night and a Russian booster rocket reenter (about 8 years ago). This object was about the same speed.I have been in the U.S. Air Force for 4 years stated at Altus AFB Ok.Local and national news has yet to say what that object might have been.
