UFO sighting South of Dallas/Ft Worth at 19:35 on 19 Oct 2007

While walking in our neighborhood last evening, my wife said look at that!

As she pointed to the sky to the south, I looked up, and saw, what appeared to be a meteorite coming down into the atmosphere. It looked like a comet.

It appeared to descend into our atmosphere at a high rate of speed, then about "one fist above the horizon" it broke into 3 distinct objects about equal distance apart, emitting a bright white light.

The 3 objects became stationary in the sky, and slowly I lost sight as they drifted beyond my line of sight.

Appeared to be south of Dallas/Ft Worth in the sky.

Any aircrew flying into or out of DFW airport at this time may have seen this event.

I am a retired fighter pilot, and currently a pilot for American Airlines.

I have dropped flares at night to illuminate target areas, and this was nothing like this!

What's up? Did anyone else see this?
