Fireballs seen over Vancouver Island.
I was out on my south facing deck, having a cigarette. I looked up at Jupiter, only to see due east of jupiter, in the southwestern sky, I watched something that could have been a rocket firetrail heading in a a southwest direction away from Victoria. I called out my room mates boyfriend to see waht I was looking at. We both watched two smaller fireballs flash brightly then both fell, one on each side of the craft. To me it looked like when the space shuttle takes off and then drops its solid fuel boosters. The third trail of fire just kept going and faded off into the night sky. I figuree it was some form of rocket, but is was after midnight, and odd time to do any missile testing, and what kind of military craft drops two rockets off, and where could this have taken off from...??? DO you know...have any other people that saw the same thing? idf you could shed a little light on what I may have seen, please let me know. Thanks
