we witnessed a large ball of light decending from the sky. it had 2 streamers of bright fire trailing from the back. judging from the speed it seemed to be quite a distance away. just as it started to go behind a row of trees the entire mass went 45 degrees vertical to the left and split into two masses of equal size,two of us viewed the object with binoculars along with another three viewed it without. after about ten minutes we lost sight of the object.

all info. stated in the summary. just would like to know what this object was. would have been a simple explanation until it went vertical.
