These objects appeared to be meteorites of a very large magnitude.

In the western sky, traveling from south to north, a fireball appeared. At first it appeared to be a jet on fire. The object appeared to be fragmenting. It left trails of smoke, similar to jet vapor in the sky, easily marking the trail of travel. bright yellow balls with blue and green tails moved slowly across the sky. It was near sunset, but not dark yet. The objects were visible only until they reached the edge of an approaching cold front, producing strong thunderstorms. As they passed behind the veil of clouds, several glows were visible until the objects reached the horizon. This was very visible to hundreds of football fans, as we were at a football game with a very open view to the sky. The object appeared to be very high in the sky, not near the ground as it passed through on an arc.
