they started out like comets from the sky converting into circle of lights moving side to side

As I was driving past some train tracks, something in the sky caught my mother's attention. I pulled over to the side because what we saw seemed like three pretty large comets falling from the sky (not really lined up). It was about SE far from downtown. Another car pulled over to see what we saw, so we were not the only ones who witnessed this. There was an airplane flying what seemed past these figures so we wondered if they were burning debri or something of that sort. We were convinced that they were ufo's when two of the three started slowing down and at this time they look like balls of light moving around then side to side until they stopped right next to each other and stood still for one second. Then, all three started slowly moving down, once again with their tail of fire, now moving side to side as they were heading downward. They were disappearing and reappearing until they dissapeared behind the buildings. At this time, my mother and I noticed several airplanes flying about. I wondered if maybe we were not the only ones who witnessed this.
