Characteristics: The object emitted other objects
watched a yellow pt of light drop strt down, it stopped at roughly 45 deg l.o.s. to hor. it stopped, hovered a sec or two, then apparently divided in 4 pcs, departed in 4 dir, 90 deg from each other.

I was on the way home from work, and saw what i thought might be a meteor. but it was the wrong color (yellow), and moving too slowly, and in the wrong direction (straight down, as opposed to horizontally). It was a little larger than the other stars, and bright yellow, it was the movement and color that caught my eye. It dropped to a point in front of me, and about 45 deg from the horizon, stopped, then apparently divided into 4 sections (as it was just a point of light, i say apparently), then each section made a bit of an s-curve away from each other, and departed in 4 different directions, roughly 90 deg from each other. At the time i thought it interesting, and didn't mention it to anyone. Could this be a ufo sighting? please resopnd via e-mail.
