Location: Toronto (Canada), ON
Duration:20 sec
Not believed to be a U.F.O. but was definately a very large object breaking up.

While driving south on hwy. 400 approx. 40 mi. north of Toronto I witnessed emerging from behind my rear view mirror a long trail of tumbelling and flaming debris linked together by sparks. About 10 objects of varying sizes travelling about the appearent speed of vehicles on a highway about a mile away at 90 deg to my line of sight. Roughly 30 deg. in elev. from horiz they appeared at first like cars going over an overpass with headlights shining on the guardrail. I watched for about 20 sec. as the objects, travelling horizontally, finally dimmed and went out roughly together. The largest of the objects were obviously still intact when they cooled and would have landed. As distance was difficult to judge from one position its hard to determine rough location but from my perspective they were heading in the direction of eastern Lake Ontario My questions are:1, Would they have been leonids travelling from west to east? 2, Would they have been leonids being that big? 3, Could it have been an opertune reentering of terrestrial hardware 4, Did I report this to the proper authorities & if not, please advise. Also please reply. Very respectfully ((name deleted))
