red ball of light hovering and moving without sound, shot sparks which produced three white lights that formed a vertical formation under red light

Red ball of light hovering and moving about without sound, first thought it was fireworks because of the date. However, the red ball appeared to shoot white sparks that produced three white lights that formed a vertical formation under red light. Then thought that my wife and I were seeing things and assumed the lights were a radio tower in the distance, but the formation started to move. At that time our neighbors came out of the house and witnessed the object in the sky. At that time the white lights disappeared and the red light moved about the sky unlike any conventional aircraft I have ever seen. Then the red light appeared to head straight down into the ground, but could have gone past our view of the horizon. This sighting was about 20 minutes total. I am an engineer, wife is a dental tech and neighbors are stock brokers.
