Duration:2-4 seconds
7-9 dull red balls of light seen in high speed chevron shape

While debating whether to take out my telescope, I was looking at the night sky when 7-9 dull red balls (?) in an incomplete cheveron shape (only two lights on one side with 5-7 on the other) streaked due directly South. Appeared to be very high altitude, did not seem like one solid craft as light sources seemed to lurch forward, then slow independently of one another.

Maybe a meteorite had broken up? Did not look like any other meteorite I've seen as all light sources appeared steady in brightness, and chevron pattern did not change. From visible horizon to horizon is several seconds.
