It was just like the footage of the shuttle explosion!

Last p.m. my wife and i were leaving my parents house, we steped off the porch facing south and noticed the brightest object i have ever seen in the sky. It traveled across the sky in a north western trajectory. It was almost identical to the footage of the recent shuttle explosion. You could see it burning entering the earths atmosphere with the longest tail i have ever seen, and i watched the last meteor shower in its entirity and never saw anything resembling this. it traveled about 10ft then expoloded. After that it traveled about 25 more feet and exploded again and the the show was over. My father in law works for nasa and has confirmed no humans in space at that time with the excepition of the space station which moved over head aprox. 30 min prior. He contributes this to falling space debris or a satellite but i dont know it was the weirdest thing i have ever seen! email ((address deleted))
