QE2 Asteroid

Ok can anyone confirm where about this object would be shortly after sunset and if its still visible? I had the scope out earlier to try find Mercury or Venus which is visible at the minute to the North West'ish just after sunset. Didn't manage to view either of the planets but roughly in the same area I could see what I could only describe as an asteroid. Wasn't the usual comet circular shape with a tail. more like a random jiggered shape with a few small tails.. I also got the wife to have a quick look and she confirmed the same visible object I've described. I know the QE2 asteroid has been a recent event so I was curious if this might be what I observed or if I'm seeing things lol. Sorry for any bad spellings/grammer... its late and I've rushed this.. off to bed now :)
