Location: Antioch, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 7minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, The object emitted other objects
Fireball like object, dropping flare like objects then disappearing

The craft this morning was bright orange and seemed to be closer than last nights. It traveled across the sky dropping first one flare like object and then another which split into two objects before it disappeared. This all happened at 5am this morning and lasted for about 7 minutes. My daughter was with me and witnessed the entire thing. We also noticed no planes but it was rather cloudy. The flare like objects that fell from the Fireball were the same color with sparkling Fire-cracker like tails. They faded before falling completely to the ground. About 10 minutes after the sighting a helicopter was circleing the vacinity were we saw the fireball craft. And I remember helicopters after the other craft sightings. I believe these might be pre-ordained drops. But what's being dropped and Who or What is dropping it I'd sure like to know.
