Duration:20 seconds
Several bright circular lights,travling at about a 60 degree descent from west to east.

While lying on the sofa, out of our west window through the blinds I saw several bright circular lights. I quickly got up and ran to the east door. Through the glass door I saw around 5 (white with yellow/orange)balls of light travling in a straight line,directly behind eachother, like slow comets with short wide tails. The tails were aout twice as long as the objects, and slightly wider. Each tail stoped before the next object began. They were decending to the east at an approximate angle of 60 degrees. I called for my daughters and we quickly went outside. We saw them go down below the tree line toward Lapeer. They went over my house, to the south. My wife saw the same thing, she was 10 miles west of us in Flint. I immediately called the police. They received several calls, including the flight administration saying a plane went down. This was no airplane or meteor. There were no flames, only a strange, plasma like tail that disipated. I heard no sound.
