Two Red Lights Over Eastern Maricopa County, AZ on July, 25 2000

On the evening of July 25th at approximately 2015 hours I was walking my dog and first noticed a very low altitude shooting star with a very long tail moving quickly foover the southern sky, from west to east. It covered the whole sky! Shortly thereafter, I started walking east and noticed 2 bright red lights hovering over the Eastern sky. I live in the East Valley (Chandler, AZ) and under the flight path to low altitude approaches to Sky Harbor Airport, so I first thought it was a commercial aircraft, but quickly realized these two red lights were something unknown. As I watched the lights one of them blacked out for a couple of seconds, then reappeared. Both still in the same spot. From my position, these lights were east, northeast at approximately 50 to 60 degrees from the horizon. It did cross my mind these could be flares, but there is noway. Anyway, suddenly one of the red lights fell to the earth, leaving the other still suppended in its original position. At 2045 hours the remaining red light blacked out for good. We do have a National Guard Unit around the Papago Buttes, but this sighting was way east of there. Anyway, please let me know if you receive any information regarding this! ((name deleted))
