bright white sphere flyes over head

I was sitting in the parking lot at after my shift. a co-worker and I were having a conversation. Then all of a sudden he looked up and said "what the". expecting see nothing but another missed shooting star I looked back, but instead I saw what looked like a very large distinct spherical brightly lit object flying across the entire span of the sky. It flew from the south in a northern direction, directly over our heads. It flew silently, lower and faster than any airplane normally would, and slower and longer than any shooting star I'v ever witnessed. It also traveled in a straight trajectory. It was bright white in color with a slight blue tint and a tail behind it (maybe 4 times its own diameter). I have never seen anything like it. The other witnesses I refer too were way across the parking lot. we heard the others saying "did you see that". If you have any feedback or other reports of this type send corrispondence my way I would like some sort of explaination to what I could only describe as unexplainably frightening,
