A note to this sighting report. As soon as the report showed up in my inbox I picked up the telephone and called the witness. We had a talk over what the two people witness. When the man tells us all that the objects made a turn to the north, well the objects made a 90 degree turn and the objects would move around one another as they traveled along. Also photo were taken and will be sent along once they are developed.

Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 4-6
Shape of objects: dots with long trails

Full Description of event/sighting: as I was traveling northbound on the 15 freeway, my wife noticed multiple objects, 4-6 of them in the clear blue sky with contrails moving slowly from the west to the east due north of our position. I explained to her the I thought it was a meteor that was breaking up in the atmosphere as it burned up. the contrails were long and flowing, but they dissipated awfully fast to be smoke and debris from a meteor. they faded more like mist. anyway, they continued moving slowly and as it appeared, randomly intertwining between each other as they fell. I thought it would be cool to get pictures. As I pulled over and got out, I noticed that all of them turned due north together and appeared to be falling at the same rate of speed, just away from us. I took three pictures and the objects faded into the distance. I was okay with the meteor idea right up until they all turned to the north. my wife thought that since there was gusty winds at the time that the wind had blown the falling debris to the north, but I explained to her that if it had been debris burning up from space, that the pieces were probably traveling at hundreds or thousands of miles per hour and the 40 mph gusts wouldn't affect them. not withstanding the fact that they were probably so high up in the atmosphere that the weather down here wouldn't even affect it or be close to the same for that matter. I got pictures! Did anyone else see the objects?

Thank you to the witness for the report.
