Location: West Virginia (Interstate 81, near PA border), WV
Shape: Fireball
My wifw and I, while driving on interstate 81 saw three bright objects, in formation, going from waest to east in the north sky at about 35 degrees .They were too slow for meteors and gradually crossed the sky with a sparkler-like trail. Then they faded from view at approximately three/quarters across the horizon.

We observed these objects while driving a rented moving van going through West Virginia, just south of the Pennsylvania border, on interstate 81. My wife yelled at me and said what the heck are those things in the sky. It was eerie. At first I thought it was incoming rockets, or meteors. But they were in some sort of formation, equidistant from ech other. When one slowed up they all did, when the leader faded, they all did.
