Shape: Fireball
Duration: 7 minutes
Characteristics: The object left a trail
white object flying overhead -

My coworker I carpool with was driving on Hwy 4 towards Antioch Pittsburg when we noticed something in the sky. Nearing the Pittsburg Bart Station, to the north east area of the sky we could see, looked like a comet of some sort - like something was burning in our atmosphere, then we noticed there were more. one in the center and two on the right side of us. These were not aircraft or planes. There was a white tail on all of these "things" one seemed to float and then move quickly to the left of us. they were situated at different angles so we were not sure it was a meteor shower we were seeing. then the one on the right seem to seperate. There was a ball or round shape sepereated from the burning white tail. after it seperated, the tail seemed to dissipate. we looked to the left and there was another which seemed to seperate, but since we were looking towards the sun, we could not see it as we drove closer to Antioch, CA.
