Duration:30 minutes
Fireball crafts being launched from a larger craft.

It was about 10:45 in the evening and we saw a fireball in the sky. There were about 8 or 10 more of them in 5 minute intervals. I believe that they were a craft being launched from a larger craft. They were a sodium color and they resembled a roman candle firing off. They came toward the ground vertically, dropped, and then took off horizontally. Then, the fire burned out and they disappeared.
