firball craft in sky over concord california

I was driving north east on Detroit ave, when I noticed an unusally luminated object in the sky. It was reddish orange in color, and I want to say it was dim in appearance. It had almost a "natural" color to it, Like that of fire. In other words it didnt appear to be luminated by artificial light. Its would slow down and change directions like nothing I know of, except a helicopter but helicopters are loud and there was no sound coming from this thing. I pulled over and it was gone. so we drove around looking for it because we thought a building or a tree could have blocked our view, when we see it appear again almost like it appeared out of knowhere. We got out of the car and observed the object and was heading in our direction, maybe about a mile north from us. I began calling family and friends but knowone could see it. I concluded from this that the object was much closer than we thought. And coiuldnt have been much bigger than an average jet. The object began dropping some sort of luminated debris over the city. The debris looked as if it was on fire or luminated as well but it appeared to go out before it hit the ground. But it was rythmically dropping debrit for the duration of at least a minute, every two seconds. This excited me! What was it dropping???? It was actually pretty scary too!! It went passed where we were and finally faded out into the sky like a campfire would go out. This object looked almost "organic". It was very bizzare
