Description: *Aware of the meteor shower, I was outside in my friends front yard facing east and noticed what appeared to be a very large meteorite. It was inclining at a very slow speed. After about 30 seconds of it's presence, I ran into the house and got everyone outside to view what I was seeing. Moments later it started declining, and resembled a plane on fire going down. It split into 4 pieces which appeared the same size, and the fire disappeared. You could see dim red lights which led us to believe that an airplane had exploded. A few seconds later, the remaining pieces flared back up and started weaving in and out of each other in a horizontal fashion. They slowly dropped towards the skyline, but the whole sighting lasted about 3.5 - 4 minutes. We all came to the conclusion that it was not an airplane, and from my experience in astronomy, definitely not a meteorite.
