Streaking firework-type lights going south to north over western Olathe KS

It looked like fireworks streaking sideways from south to north in the western sky. We thought it was a meteor shower but it was going too slow. I thought maybe something exploded and the fuel was on fire. There were many specks of light, like a firework. There were two main lights ahead of the rest. Then the lights all winked out. I don't know if it was a spaceship but it was definitely an unidentified flying object!
