Location: Maryville, MO
Shape: Light
Duration: 2 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, The object emitted other objects
One point of light split into three points of light.

I was facing NNE at ~11:50 from Northwest University and saw a white point of light fall downward from left to right at a pretty steep angle. The point of light split into three smaller points and eventually faded off.

Both the single point and the three points had a trail behind them.

This all happened in ~two seconds.

It was roughly 30 above ground level.

I would be willing to guess it was a meteor.

Even if its not a UFO this is just to help report and confirm any other similar sightings at this place and time.
