Fiery object moving south to north which separated into approx 5 small objects which trailed it in a straight line

On October 3, 2006, at approximately 11:15 p.m. while looking to the west, we witnessed a very large fiery object in the western sky slightly above the mountains. It appeared to burn with a bright white color. The object moved in a left to right (south to very slightly northeast) direction and seemed to hold a relatively flat trajectory across the sky. The sighting lasted approximately 60 to 90 seconds. As the object moved away to the north, it separated into at least 5 individual, small orange objects that trailed it in a straight line. The small objects diminished in size with the largest directly behind and the smallest at the end of the line.
