Dark object flames-out over sw skies of Austin, TX.

Austin, Texas. Approximately 21:05, June 11, 2015.

In the southwestern skies, toward Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, below the level that an airplane would pass, I witnessed a 5 to 15 second flaming object descending in the sky. The sky was twilight but not yet totally night.

The object had a long glowing white tail like a falling star, but it had an red/orange (like it was flaming) area just before the tail in what I'll call the mid-section of the object. Just in front of the red/orange are was a black portion which was the front of the object. It looked rounded at the front. It definitely looked like it was flaming-out (burning up as it descended) but it was not descending quickly but rather was moving in a leveled elevation.

I saw the white tail first, then the red/orange area appeared, grew more prominent then the entire object seemed to flame-out while moving very quickly in a rather straight line only descending slightly (not like a falling star but traveling leveled). The object then disappeared. I did not see it descend any farther, it was gone.
