Huge fireball came straight down from nowhere.

I went outside on the back porch to have a cigarette about 3:30am, as I often do. I was looking east, just noticing the complete quiet and stillness of the night. I was out there for 3 or 4 minutes, when suddenly a huge, round, extremely bright fireball seemed to just drop straight down out of the sky from no where! It seemed as if it was coming directly towards me, as it was getting bigger and brighter. It was going faster than any airplane I have ever seen, but not as fast as a shooting star. Its movement seemed very deliberate.

After about 45 or so seconds, it seemed to stop for a moment, and then go in the opposite direction. I briefly thought it disappeared, it seemed to turn white for a moment, then bright red again while continuing in the second direction away from me. About 15-20 seconds later, it just disappeared.

I just stood there in complete amazement for the next 5 minutes! About 5 hours earlier, I witnessed with my next door neighbor, a series! of bright, white, round objects, (15 or so), traveling in some sort of pattern, from west to east. I wrote out one of these reports earlier about that incident! My friend was joking earlier saying "are we being invaded'? I laughed! Now maybe it isn't so funny! What are we seeing?
