Three orange-colored trails falling out of the sky.

Facing West, while looking through my farmhouse window, into the fading sunset, over the Massanutten Mountain range perhaps, I witnessed three orange trails falling towards the Earth. Upon first appearance, I noticed one trail fall out of the sky from high above, and it appeared to hover in stationary position for a few moments, but then after about one minute, it started falling slowly towards Earth. Shortly thereafter, the other two orange trails appeared in similar fashion, but only to eventually pass the first one. After a total time of perhaps two to two-and-half minutes, they disappeared behind the trees and horizon, and I never saw them re-appear. Don't know what this was. Perhaps pieces to a falling meteorite? I have four photographs I am prepared to send.
