Johannesburg, South Africa Meteor 16NOV2011

Johannesburg, South Africa Meteor ~8:00 pm 16NOV2011
At about 8pm on 16NOV2011 in Johannesburg, South Africa, saw an incredible Bright white - almost yellowish I would say... Just very very bright.meteor? shooting star? something... very bright light, in what may have been the eastern part of the sky. Have seen many shooting stars but nothing so spectacular - and in the middle of a city, with loads of ambient light. What was this?? We thought maybe a satellite burning up on re-entry? Or perhaps a bit of the Leonid meteor shower that arrived 'early'?! Thoughts and info would be really appreciated! Best wishes, Jane  Thank you Jane!
