Shape: Light
Duration: 1 second
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, The object emitted other objects
Cluster of lights w/ large trail of debris

I noticed a slow-moving cluster of lights in the sky that dissipated shortly after I noticed it. At first, it had the appearance of a satellite burning upon re-entry to earth, except all the lights were white rather than many colors(as would normally be expected from a shooting star or burning satellite). Also, the lights were moving too slow to be meteorite(less than mach 3 for sure). As it was moving, I noticed a trail of smaller lights launching from the cluster, but in the opposite direction. The trail behaved like debris being left behind a fast-moving vehicle, except it was moving faster than the larger cluster of lights. Keep in mind that during this time the cluster was still visible and all this happened within a second. Normally, I would dismiss this as a meteorite or satellite anyway, but this is the third sighting I've had of this type of object since June 2004.
