I saw the whole thing on my drive into work this morning. At first I thought it was just a helicopter with a spotlight but as I watched it broke into a million little pieces.
The first link has the best video but the camera man zoomed in and it kinda makes it look like it explodes but that isn't really what happened, it just came apart (almost slow motion). Due to all the different types of metal in the object the colors were almost like fireworks.

NORAD says it was a Russian rocket:

I saw it. Way cool. I was out walking the dog and I saw the thing light up northwest of Boulder. I stood there with my mouth open thinking: WTF? As it streaked to the south I figured it was a meteor breaking up. What was realy neat was the colors. Any other shooting star is white. This definitely had blues and greens. It lasted a good 30 seconds. As it faded out I was looking around hoping to see someone, anyone just to say DID YOU SEE THAT?
