Location: Antioch, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: The object emitted other objects, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Two orange objects seen one dropping smaller orange lights underneath it.

My fiance and I were walking from our house to our car and looked up in the north-western sky and saw an orange ball travelling westbound. As it was travelling, smaller orange lights were dropping from it. The smaller ights looked almost like sparks and we at first thought it was a flare from a flare gun. Once the object travelled out of site, a second identical object was seen coming from southern sky heading northbound. This object was not dropping smaller lights as the other one did though. While the first object was visible, my fiance ran in and grabbed our digital camera and several shots were taken of both objects. Unfortunately, the detail does not show up in the picturers.

((NUFORC Note: We will attempt to review the video tape. PD))
