10pm Thursday July 31, 2014.

My son and I arrive home at 10pm. As we were parking, at about 45 degrees up, to the north, we witnessed an object, a orange more yellow circular object that disappeared then, reappeared several times as it seemed to travel down.

As it approached approx. 30 degrees, it split in two with what seemed like a lava lamp separation with particles between two separated parts.

As it fell to a tree line that obscured our view there was a flash more like lighting, though the skies were clear with the exception of a few Sirius cloud whiffs.

My son got scared and went into the house, and after about 30 seconds, there was a secondary flash that seemed to be an angle on the ground.

I continued to watch and a third flash occurred approx. 2 minutes after that, that seemed to be at ground level.

Though we are near a regional airport and a Coast Guard Station, no sound accompanied this sighting .
