bright star orange /fireball that was dropping several smaller fireball objects from its center.

On Saturday night, Sept 16, 2017, I had stepped out onto my deck to look at the clear night, and was facing North West through the trees. I saw a bright orange star that was different, and I watched it to see if it was an airplane or possibly a satellite. As I watched it, I noticed a smaller ball of light drop out of the "orb" or what ever it was. It was like a ball of fire dropped straight out of the "mother craft" and went to the ground. I half expected an explosion, but heard and saw nothing.

Then it dropped another ball of fire, which also seemed to drop straight down for a while. It seems it may have veered to the left before dropping out of sight. Several seconds elapsed when it began to drop fire balls on a more rapid succession. The larger orb/star/satellite/ began to move slowly towards the south into a more westerly direction and began to be obscured by trees. I actually checked the news for reports of explosions or other witnesses, but haven't found any yet. The idea that it was an airplane fighting fires is debunked, as there are no fires burning to the west, and it wasn't an airplane, as it stayed stationary for quite a while. It wasn't fireworks, though it kind of reminded me of some upside down fireworks. It was way too high to have been fireworks, and again, no sound was heard.

I researched some other photos and it looks exactly like what some describe as an orange Orb, however, I haven't seen anyone else report it dropping smaller balls of fire from its center. These smaller balls all went straight down towards the ground, but it seems some veered off as they got closer to the ground. I didn't have a full horizon as there is a small hill in the direction I saw the object.
