What can only be described as a comet with multiple light sources (at least three - one large at front and one to the left of the front one and one behind) each having a long luminescent tail. The objects were moving too fast to be aircraft and too slowly to be meteorites. I phoned local ATC and reported the incident (I have never done such a thing before) and they told me that two Pilots reported the same sight at about the same time and there was nothing on radar. The object disappeared from view behind a tree abd then disappeared altogether. If this can be explained - I would sure like to know because I am totally freaked out by what I saw. There was total silence and the the objects were not very high , but not very low either - I cannot gauge in actual feet, but could roughly show the flight path in the sky.
