Large white object came into atmosphere and broke up into 5 smaller objects over Kansas City, MO

While driving southbound on I-29 highway north of Kansas City, MO, my driver and I saw what looked like a large round white fireball coming into the atmosphere. There was a long white trail following the main object that was headed downward. As the object got lower it appeared to slow down, the trail of fire disapeared and the object broke into 5 smaller white objects.

These objects seemed to stop falling, spread out in the air and hover for approximately 10 seconds before disapearing behind trees and the horizon.
