Location: Menifee, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 Min
Fireball west of Menifee Ca, split into 3 balls then hovered

There was a Orange/Red fireball coming down. It was larger than any shooting star I had ever seen, and seemed to move slower with a large wide trail. After 10 or fifteen seconds two fire balls split off, one went to the left of the main ball and the other went to the right. After a few seconds the trails went away and the three lights just hovered. I turned on the video camera on my cell phone, however the record button didn’t work at first, so I lost an additional 10 seconds before I realized this. I was in the parking lot of a pharmacy and it was well lit, so I walked towards the lights to a fence to an open field, hoping to get a better shot. Once I got there I noticed the three lights changed colors a couple of times. 1:22 into my video the lights just disappeared.
