Location: San Diego, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 minute
A comet/firework like ball that separates and reconnects before apparently just disappearing into thin air.

We were driving East on Grand Ave. in the Pacific Beach area. Over the Clairemont area we saw what appeared to be 2 fireworks falling slowly from the sky.

However, they were falling too slowly for fireworks. It almost looked like 2 small comets with tails. Suddenly, they merged into one for about 15 seconds.

They separated again, but with one remaining stationary in the sky as a round ball and the other still slowly falling like a slow comet. After the "comet" was a bit below the "ball," the comet stopped as well and became a hovering "ball."

The first "ball," (farther up in the sky) disappeared into thin air. About 3 seconds later the other one turned back into a comet and fell beyond our line of sight.

Another "ball" reappeared in the same spot and stayed for about 7 seconds before disappearing once again into thin air.
