Ok, I was pulling out of the bank parking lot with a friend, and when I was pulling out, in the sky i saw the object falling towards the ground

Ok, so im pulling out of the bank parking lot when in the sky i see this type of fireball of neon glow speeding towards the ground. At first i thought that maybe a plane was crashing, because it was going really fast, but it was neon green so that wouldnt have made much sence. Well, with my girlfriend right beside me, we watched it for about 5 seconds when, as it kinda got close to the ground, it seemed to stop for a second and then split into 5 or 6 seperate balls of light, like 5 or 6 airplanes. Which reminds me, it looked as though it was near the airplanes in the sky so it couldnt have been too far off the ground, especially towards the end. Now, i know tonight there was supposed to be some meteor shower, but that didnt look like it to me, but if i could get some feedback on that then that would be great.
