The tail of the fireball I saw was very long and at the first glance looked like the tail of a jet airplane. It was white and was approximately 15-20+ degrees in length (using an arms length to measure). It was going very fast and was very bright.The tail remained the same size and near the fireball was several other small fireballs surrounding it and the tail. It seemed to be very low and was very easy to see.
Trailing behind the actual fireball were several smaller fireballs - about 10-15 fragments
