I was outside about 6 pm in the front yard facing west. out of the corner of my eye, i saw what i thought was a meteor breaking apart in the sky northwest of me. except that the fragments didn't slow nor did they lose altitude. they continued silently in a straight line due south/southeast until i could no longer see them. when i did first see them, i ran inside to get my girlfriend so she witnessed the same thing i did. the whole sighting lasted about 2-3 minutes.
