Probably not UFO - But WHAT was it that may have exploded?

Did anyone else see the formation in the North sky around noon today? At first, I thought it was just that... a stationary formation. It looked like stars in the daytime sky. There were some bright stars and a whole bunch (maybe 100) smaller ones. Then I noticed that some of the stars seemed to be moving away from each other. Then I noticed that the whole formation was moving slowly West and that the stars were starting to become less visible. Some of the brighter ones were moving apart noticeably. I observed it for about 15 minutes before they faded from sight. I didn't have time to go home for a camera.

After observing the movement, I surmised that it might well have been some type of explosion in outer space and what I saw was a debris field reflected in the sunlight. A friend witnessed it too.
