Saw a cluster of five red lights (oval) which emitted several smaller white lights.

I was driving west on Meridian and looked up to see a slowly moving red-orange light crossing from south to north in front of me. It was slower and brighter than a left-wing red airplane light. I pulled over and got the binoculars out to see a grouping of five red ovals looking exactly like your photo from Gilbert Arizona (which prompted me to make this report). Then, as I watched, 3 or four small white lights dropped out of the bottom of the thing to speed off laterally and disappear. Within seconds, it then faded to two dim white ovals and then blinked out. About 30 seconds later I saw one of the white lights drop vertically to the horizon at meteoric speed at what appeared to be at least five miles from the red lights from which it may have come. I am a former member of MUFON and an experienced observer of aerial phenomena.
