Seemed to be a controlled reentry. The object went from an amber color over the Sierras to a white as it passed to the southern horizon. A long trial was always connected to it. No fragmentation. No sound. It looked like a shallow trajectory through the atmosphere, and compared to meteors it went fairly slowly across the sky. It was above the Cirrus clouds. and would come in and out of view.
