Remarks I think i saw an initial light that looked like a shooting star but it was still daylight, it shot from overhead down toward the horizon as low as I could see it before a building blocked my sight. After the initial recognition that it looked like a shooting star I believe there were then little smaller pieces of light following behind it.
