Duration:2 minutes
Object in sky with ball of fire dangling from it, dripping sparklets of fire

I saw what I initially thought was a plane with a ball of fire dangling from it, with droplets of fire falling (like a candle). It was traveling East to Northwest. I could see a long object above the dangling fireball, it 5 orange and red lights, three in a row behind it, two lights to the left and right of the fireball. It was moving forward in the beginning and then started swaying slightly north and south (almost wobbling) as it traveled. It stopped and hovered with the fireball still lit and what still looked like drips of fire. By this time I had gotten my neighbor up who also saw the object. As it hovered the fireball went out, but I could still see one orange light from the object. It started moving again, slowly, then it I lost site of it.
