Duration:2 minutes
Standing outside, looking toward the East when I saw something moving in the sky, when it appeared to explode with 2 objects following.

Moving across the horizon, the brightly lit object was being followed by two smaller objects. It then let out a cone shaped burst that lit up the clouds for about 20 seconds and increased a distance between itself and the other two objects.

They continued to travel East, and then disappeared.
