|one fireball traveling east horizontally across the sky,sparked and broke into five balls one by one in a trail of sparks
My family and I were traveling by car on route 322 west when the sky above us revealed a white ball traveling slowly across the night sky. This ball travelled in a straight Horizontal line across the sky in an easterly direction. It progressively left a tail of sparks and smaller balls of white light behind it--totalling five--until it left our sight, the sparks nor the balls at any time fell towards the ground but instead stayed in the sky and appeared to "burn out" as they moved farther away. We observed the incident for 30 seconds or more. There did not appear to be any overhead electrical lines or aircraft in the area.
