multiple objects,flashing red/white, appeared to fire two projectiles in an arc in two different directions heard one explosions from both directions seen off and on for about a week. observed closer view appeared to be at tree level
I had just returned home from a chemistry class around 10:30 pm.I looked up at the stars because we have very little light pollution where i live. I observed an object flashing red and white. it looked like a star except the longer i looked, i observed it move very quickly then stand still like a star. At first, i thought it was a weather balloon but weather balloons don't move like that. i looked around and i saw at least 3 more to the west. after about an hour of hovering then moving slightly very quickly, the object to the south appeared to fire two projectiles first from the left side then about a second later from the right. after about 2-3 seconds i heard an explosion from the left and then from the right. the projectiles resembled shooting stars except that they traveled in an arc. My friend and mother were both inside the house and i brought the event to there attention. They both told me to get inside out of fear, However; I stated that "this is a once in a lifetime experience" and i elected to stay outside. i observed the objects for about two hours before i decided to go to sleep. the objects appeared off and on for about the next week. i was leaving a parking lot very close to my home about a week later and observed a similar object much closer to the ground(about tree top level) it was glowing red only and at arms length appeared to be about the size of a baseball. The object vanished after that and i haven't seen any since. I attempted to take photos and video on 7/12/13 but all i got was black.
