Location: Columbus, IN
Shape: Fireball
Duration:6 minutes
While travelling through Columbus, Ohio, saw a bright object break into 3 pieces go dark and reappear as 6.

I was driving my family from Seymour Indiana to New Hampshire on vacation which requured is to go through columbus Ohio. I was driving north on I 71 north just south of the city looking for my next turn to continue on 71n when I noticed a bright object to my left, NW about 11 in the sky at a high but undetermined altitude. I thought it was a meteor or comet because of the intensity of the light and it appeared to have a tail behind the head.

I yelled to my family to see it and they did. I yelled for them to video it which two of them did. Instead of one object it suddenly broke into three pieces and continued falling and then they disappeared for a brief moment and the sky went dark and then suddenly 6 light appeared with odd shapes like a triangle and I thought it might be a parachute drill team, but they started moving around in an irregular pattern which made me think debris again until they came together in a line and came down together until they all went dark at the same time and did not twinkle or go out like a flare, or one at a time.

They all suddenly vanished at the same time.

We have video and cannot find out anything on this via news or reports which makes me wonder what we witnessed. I would like help in knowing and where to have the video reviewed
