Location: Dedham, MA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 seconds
Clear/no clouds night.

On patrol, parked in lot with second cruiser. Noticed two distinct flashes similar to lightning flash or transformer malfunctioning.

Looked up and noticed a ball of bright white/yellow light streak quickly north towards Boston, then light blinked out.

I have seen plenty of shooting stars, due to working midnight shift for 13 years. This light was quick, but not like a meteor.

I also believe ball of light had two red dots of light in rear, similar in appearance to brake lights.

Very strange.
