Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Long White light hanging in E. Fl. Sky. Burst into 4 fire balls, and was gone.

I was driving north on A1A in Highland Beach area. I looked a bit west toward downtown W Palm Beach. I saw a long white light hanging in sky. Not across but up and down! There was a plane above it in the distance, I thought it was towing something. I looked over as I drove. The plane continued to the east but the light just hung in the same spot. It was maybe 3-4 inches in the distance. Quite big. It just hung there...not moving in the sky. Then from the bottom of the streak, it burst into 4 fire balls and was gone. Just disappeared.

I have looked for reports of satelite launches and meteors. Nothing found.

There was a meteor shower going on at that time. They usually go across sky.

Was this one that burnt up in atmosphere? I have seen meteors but never anything like this! Did anyone else see this?
