|object with shower of sparks flying level across the horizon
Was called out to fix some communications equipment that had failed in Oak Glen. Fixed equipment and was heading down the hill toward the southwest, had a beautiful view of the horizon, and noticed what I thought was an aircraft way in the distance with a trail of sparks behind it. Looked almost like a rocket plume behind it. It stayed steady in my windshield, and I almost thought at first it was a large bug splatter, so I stopped on the side of the road and watched it. It was traveling about the speed of a jetliner, from west to east, level about 15 degrees above the horizon. After a few seconds, the plume went away, and the light continued steady towards the east. After a minute, the object turned south and another large shower of sparks and light eminated from the rear, then the object disappeared.
