Dividing lights over Mohawk Valley mountains in Arizona.

Driving east on I-8 alone but on the phone. Before going through the Mohawk Valley mountains I saw a bright yellow light appear south of I-8 above the mountains. The light divided creating two lights. The first light disappeared leaving the second light. The second light divided making a third light. The second light disappeared leaving the third light which divided then disappeared leaving a fourth light which then disappeared. I was telling the other person on the phone what was happening while it was happening. I then drove through the mountains and continued to watch the skies to the east, south and north. I saw a white light that was flashing unlike a plane and moving from south toward the east. I was describing the flashing light to the other person on the phone when all of a sudden a falling star catch my eye streaking across the sky from the north to the east. After it disappeared I tried to look for the white flashing light but could not find it. Shortly after that I saw groups of what looked like planes flying east. The same direction in which the white flashing light was headed.
