Duration:couple minutes
saw bright flame across sky twice, followed by tiny red lights, one moving in a sprial pattern and others stationary in the sky.

I was getting on the freeway heading east, when out of the corner of my eye I saw what looked like the flame from the bottom of a space shuttle taking off, butit was on its side instead of being in an upright position. I saw it off to my right, which would be west, at first and it blasted like across the sky for a short distance, then it went out and then a few seconds later appeared once again with the same kind of high power looking kind of flame. I could not get a view of anything in front of this flame, the night sky was dark and i couldn't see any objects against it, nor could i get a feel of how far or close this object was. Then I saw the flame go out and I then noticed many tiny red lights in the sky all around the area where this other bright flame that I had just seen was. I noticed one of the red lights move up in the sky in a spiral like manner. I also noticed that the some of the other red lights were blinking and moving a little but not alot. Like I said before I was getting on the freeway when the lights first caught my attention, so I was still driving and watching this whole thing happen as much as I could without getting in an accident. I took my eyes off the lights for a couple seconds to make sure I wasn't about to hit somebody on the freeway, when I turned back to look again there was nothing in the sky, it was gone.
