Color was a bright whitish blue.  No sound that I was able to hear, as I was in a car w/ windows rolled up. Very bright - brighter than Venus; as bright as moon on some nights A little bit, just as it was trailing off Most notable to me, novice, was how low in the sky and how much larger than others I've seen over the years.
