Location: Delray Beach, FL
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Single white light changes to multiple sources with red light, splits up. Red light moves differently and sparkle type exhaust noticed.

Early Friday Morning 4/25/97 at approximately 1:45 AM (worked late) I was traveling north on Military Trail between Atlantic and Lake Ida Road. I noticed a rather large white light, like a helicopter spot light in the north sky. Then I suddenly noticed a red light below it. The red light looked like a tower light at first. Then I noticed that it was much wider than a single tower light.

I turned east on Lake Ida road and was alternately watching the road and looking north (to my left) at the lights. The red light was now rectangular in shape and there was some small areas where there was maybe white light by the red.

Then the Large white source became 4 blinking smaller white lights, like 2 lights each on the wing tips of an airplane. The white lights flew to the south above me and then I couldn't find them. The red light started moving rather rapidly to the east. Then I noticed red sparkles horizontally behind the red light. The sparkles were like fireworks sparkles. The sparkles became a streak and the red light continued moving east very fast and became very small. The sparkles disappeared. The red light became indistinguishable from a star or ordinary airplane light and kept moving east until I couldn't spot it anymore.

When this happened 4/25/97 I documented it and emailed to family. I just found your web site June 29, 2012 when I saw another strange set of objects and reported them and then report this 1997 incident.
