THE OBJECT STARTED EMITTING WHAT LOOKED TO BE FIREBALLS.

MYSELF AND TWO FRIENDS OBSERVED AN OBJECT COMING FROM THE NORTH TRAVELING AT A SLOW SPEED AT AN ALTITUDE OF ABOUT 20000 FT. ONCE I SHOUTED TO ONE FRIEND TO SEE WHAT I WAS SEEING, THE OBJECT CAME ALMOST TO A STOP, CHANGED DIRECTIONS AND HEADED EAST. AS IT TRAVELED EAST, IT SEEMED TO SPEED UP AND SLOW DOWN. IT DID THIS FIVE TIMES. AS THAT HAPPENED, FRIEND ONE SHOUTED TO FRIEND TWO TO COME SEE WHAT WE WERE WITNESSING. ONCE SHE CAME OUT, IT CAME ALMOST TO A STOP AGAIN. THEN WE SAW WHAT WAS OBVIOUSLY TWO JETS COMING FROM TWO ANGLES TOWARD THE OBJECT. ONE FROM THE WEST AND ONE FROM SOUTHEAST. THE VERY MOMENT WE SAW THE TWO JETS COME INTO VIEW, THE OBJECT STARTED EMITTING WHAT LOOKED TO BE FIREBALLS FROM THE BOTTOM OF IT. SHORTLY AFTER THAT, ITS ORANGE LIGHT FLICKERED ON AND OFF AND SHOT OFF IN THE SKY AND DISAPPEARED TO THE EAST. STILL IN AMAZEMENT FROM THIS EVENT, MY TWO FRIENDS WENT BACK OUTSIDE AND SAW IT AGAIN. THIS TIME IT APPEARED FROM THE WEST. IT HAD THE S! AME MANNERISMS AS BEFORE WITH THE WAY IT MANEUVERED. ITS LIGHT FLICKERED AGAIN AND LITTERALLY DROPPED FROM THE SKY. AS IT CAME DOWN, IT FLUTTERED AS A PLASTIC GROCERY BAG WOULD. IT THEN DISAPPEARED BEHIND A NEIGHBORING HOUSE. WE CONTINUED TO OBSERVE THE AREA FOR ANOTHER 10 MINUTES. NOTHING REAPPEARED.
