|on the night of the 7tha nd the 14th of March my boyfriend and i witnessed a 3- 5 fireballs in the eastern sky at about 10pm central time...i thought at the time they were just fire works celebrating Mardi Gras.but they lingered way too long in the sky. last night at the same tme we observed them again. Upon reading your website today and finding that i am not the only one to have seen this i thought I would reprot it.I hope you can determine the cause of this....its really odd
the objects were golden in color and appeared in the eastern sky not too far from the horizon. that area is over Pensacola Bay. The lights lingerd gor some time ...approx. 3-5 seconds. within about 5 min they appeared again...4-5 orb at different intervals ( within milli seconds ) rose up only to hover and dissappear. the phenomenon ended after the second time. ( or we diamissed it and didn't pay attention to it) I thought they might be flares or fire works, but my fiancee ( an ex coat gaurdsman) assured me that flares leave trails... these did not. The orbs were very bright and seemed to be devised to catch someones attention...as in a flare.
