2 Pure white flashing lights flying then fireball falls from sky.

We observed an odd set of pure white blinking (simultaneous) lights of an unknown craft that would SPEED up & slow down erratically then stop at which time a large fireball fell slowly from it. We noticed the craft circle around and head back the way it came SW as we watched the fireball until it was below tree line out of view. THE craft (lights) continued to circle the area for another few minutes rising & falling in altitude impossible for any aircraft I've seen then sped off NW. The lights would also alternate from horizontal to vertical at times.
