Orbs/Teardrops Dropping Out of A Cloud Over Lake Erie

On July 4th I witnessed 4 (white) falling objects in the bright of day falling to the earth from a large overhead cloud. I was driving East on the Route 2 Shore-way, coming from Cleveland, OH going towards my home in Madison OH. It was about 2:30 in the afternoon. (Route 2 runs along Lake Erie.) I noticed a huge oval cloud (kind of shaped like a mushroom without the stem) over the lake as if a storm were brewing. It caught my eye because I noticed a small white orb/teardrop shape with a white trail dropping down out of the cloud, straight down into the lake, or what looked like the lake because it was so far away.

At first I thought I was seeing things and then another one dropped out of the cloud, straight down as the previous one had done, dropping into the lake.

Two more of these white orbs/teardrops followed one after the other. I didn’t notice a splash because #1 I was driving on a crowded highway and #2 the cloud was far off, probably closer to Canada.! The weather was hot and humid, but there were some storm clouds way out over Lake Erie.

The size of the orb/teardrop was (to me) about the size of a pencil tip, maybe a little bigger. I had my windows up with the a/c set to 2 and therefore I have no idea if there was an accompanying noise.

I am a 55-year old woman who doesn’t see things like this but I thought that it was odd enough that I should report it to someone just in case others saw the same thing I did.
