|a light source that was dropping lights out the bottom, they were not flares
I was driving west on Highway 138 at 10:40 p.m. on July 4th 2014, I was about halfway between Victorville and Palmdale when I noticed some lights just northwest of my position.
They were about a mile and half in the sky maybe more but at least a few thousand feet above all the fireworks that were going off.
I slowed and began to watch when I noticed it was one light source that was originally like a whitish blue star but throughout the ten minutes I view it changed colors finally staying light red the last 5 minutes.
This main light source was slowly dropping lights or lit pieces of something from the bottom as it floated westwardly for about the first 3 minutes of observation then then it began shooting lights or flares or whatever it was out the bottom rapidly. The lights coming out the bottom were reds, greens and whites in no order. A few shot out to the front and a few to the rear.
Then the main light which exploded 2 times like C4 before fading out.
