Huge fireball in Phoenix turns into two orbs that float and tumble to the ground

On October 12, my family and I were hiking North Mountain in Phoenix, AZ at 6:55pm. On our descent, I saw out of the corner of my eye a bight flash, and I dismissed it as lightning. Ten to 20 seconds later, I looked left, and due West, I saw a fireball in the sky. Not a small meteor with a smoke trail (I've seen those too) - This was fully on fire, and huge, much like a movie set. Once it hit the clouds, it blinked out. Three seconds later, two very bright and disticnt orbs started free falling to earth from the spot that the metoer dissapeared, only not straight down. It took 4 mins for them to reach the surface, after going this way and that, pausing, and circling down to the ground. It was like the two orbs were dancing with each other on the way down. I've seen some pretty weird things in my life, but this was the most life-changing event of them all.
