Lights seen in Virginia Beach sky

On July 6 2009 I had gone out back to my patio to talk on the phone to a good friend of mine. After about 3 min of talk I noticed what looked like a dim, pulsating, blue star moving extremely fast to the south west and ascending. It was moving entirely to fast to be a plane and also moving to slow to be a shooting star. It proceeded to change its course to direct west and straightened its course, then went out immediatly. After about 30 sec I noticed a much brighter and continuous white light bigger than the first (about 3 times larger.) and also much lower and closer, moving at about the same speed as the first, heading in a north west direction. It proceeded to ascend also and then abruptly faded out like a shooting star about roughly a mile from my position. This was not a shooting star.

After this event about 3 min to 5 min later I noticed a 3rd light that immediately shot out of the northern sky and descended to the southern sky. It then proceeded to fade out. The 3rd light I believe was a normal shooting star (Meteorite).
