Duration:2 minutes
Fiery balls falling from the sky over El Paso.

My husband and I were driving west on 375. He pointed at something in the sky. It was a fiery ball falling from the sky. We discussed how shooting stars aren't that slow and we watched it fall. Once it fell close to the surface it stopped moving and turned into a white light instead of flaming. It stayed in that position for about 30 seconds and then disappeared.

As we started to exit 375 to get onto 601 we noticed 3-4 cars parked along the side of the road. People were outside of their cars pointing toward the mountain. As my husband and I looked over we same the same fiery ball falling toward the mountain. This time it split into 5 separate balls, each did the same thing as the first. They fell until they were closer to the ground then hovered once they turned into a white light. Stayed light that for a few seconds and then disappeared.
