Extra large meteorite or something more local seen 'burning' and breaking up as it covered the entire southern sky.

While driving along Rte 3 South in Hingham, MA two of us saw an amazing meteor or something more local. It looked like a large bright meteorite in the Southeastern sky. Much brighter than a any meteorite either of us has seen and we have seen hundreds of meteorites. After a second or so it broke off into three trailing smaller peices that burned as brightly , though not as large. The now four lights travelled behind the tree line and out of sight at a very high consistant speed, not appearing to burn out. It left a slight 'light trail' it was so bright against an average to dark sky.
