Shape: Fireball
Duration:2minutes
Fireballs traveling low on horizon at great rate of speed and manueverablilty

My wife and I were parked on a dock, facing north, when I noticed what I thought was an extremely large ball of fire on the beach of Kenzuroff Lagoon apx. 4 miles from our location. Then the "ball of fire" began traveling along the horizon on a westerly course at a fast but earthly rate of speed. I summized to my wife that It must be a helicopter or something. It accelerated and followed the hilly terrain at a speed well above any normal fixed wing or rotor aircraft. It departed from the horizon still accellerating and dissappeared into the overcast which I estimated to have been 2500 ft agl. When It dissapeared my wife noticed another such object following apx. 5 secs. behind. It follwed a similar course and dissapeared.
