Fire trails in the sky, changing direction and descending.

While driving north on Cooper Road, my daughter and I witnessed four objects in the sky with fire trailing behind them. The objects seemed to be travelling back and forth, and each time they changed direction, the fire trail subsided, as if the object was changing direction and we could not see the exhaust at that time.

This gave the appearance that the four objects would randomly disappear, and then reappear nearby.

The objects seemed to be descending, zigzagging in the same area of the sky. In just a few minutes, they disappeared.

All we could really see was the fire trails, or exhaust plumes of the objects. Something was obviously leaving fire trails, as they appeared very thick at the source of the trail and thin at the rear of the trail as it burned out.

This area of the sky commonly has aircraft passing by, since Sky Harbor airport is nearby. We could see the light of jets as well, but those were MUCH higher in the sky and further away. These fire trails seemed less than 5,000 feet in the air, and less than 10 miles away from our location.
