Red orb drops white orbs at night

We saw a red orb-like light in the sky. It was moving slowly like a plane, but it was much brighter. It was during 4th of July so we thought it may have been a firework, but it moved in a northerly direction without falling or fizzling out. It dropped two white orbs out of the bottom that we thought were fireworks at first, but they dropped without fizzling out and much slower than a firework would fall. The orbs continued toward the ground and then the red light kept moving for another 20-30 seconds before it disappeared. The sky was dark but clear. We did not see it again.
