Location: Auburn, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 minutes
Traveling across the entire horizon in less than 2 minutes, 7-8 comet-like objects blazed across the sky. One of the objects trailed off behind, while the other 6-7 continued beyond the horizon toward the east. They appeared to be a cluster of comets, that travled at exactly the same rate of speed. Their sizes varied (sm-lg) but all of them had "tails" behind them. They did not fall, like a meteor,or falling star, they instead were "traveling" apparently powered by some source. In other words, they did not loose speed as they traveled, but continued in their astonishing fast and silent flight. When I called information looking for your telephone number, I was told by the operator that several people had called in already from Redding, CA. I wish there was more to tell. Thank you for your work in this field.
