Object slowly moved cross the sky and exploded into three objects.

At sunrise on April 7th my wife and I were camping in the Carizzo Plains NM and as the beautiful sunrise was occuring right above us was a light similiar to Jupiter, but clearly it was not a planet, because it was so off the zenith.

We kept watching it as we also looked at the sunrise. The sunrise was just begining and Jupiter was to the west. I looked back at it in a minute and saw a moving star next to it. I showed that to my wife who observed that the star was moving erractally northwest.

We observed this for a minute and continued to watch the sunrise. I then took my binoculars and looked at it. It was circular and had a faint line that zigzaged through the middle and down to the left.

Keeping my attention on both the sunrise and the object we now noticed that this object was moving and not the star. It was moving towards the sunrise and moved probably 25 degrees through the sky. After 10 minutes I glanced away and looked to the east, but when I looked back it was gone! I was shocked and both my wife and I scearched the sky for it.

I took my binoculars and saw a darkish spot and we both observed three sparkling pieces of the object as it looked as it blew up. The three smaller sparkling objects slowly faded out. And that was it.
