|There were 2 lights in the southern sky, one following the other, then a 3rd light shot from one of them and headed towards the ground.
Two friends and I were looking up at the stars, and we saw 2 bright lights in the southern sky, not too far from the ground. One was following the other one and they were maintaining a very even distance. At first we thought that they were planes, but we noticed that they weren't blinking like planes usually blink. So we kept watching them, and all of a sudden, the one in the back appeared to divide into 2, and the second light separated from it very quickly and appeared to go towards the ground. We lost the third light in the trees, then very soon after the original two that we were watching disappeared behind the trees.
