Posted: 11/2/2004
Location: Vya, NV
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5-10 minutes
Multiple Fireballs in the sky

We were gathered around the campfire of a hunting camp approx. 1 mile west of Vya, NV, and about 16 miles east of Cedarville, CA. A local rancher, his wife, and a friend had stopped by to chat with us, enjoy the fire, and eat some dinner. Due west of the camp at approx. 8 p.m., eight fireballs appeared in the sky. They were some distance away, and I would guess that they were over a dry lake area just east of Cedarville, CA. One of the other in the party described them as "stadium lights". The lights then moved towards the center of the pattern and became one light. Then they just blinked out. About a minute or so later they re-appeared, but there were only 6 light this time. This time they did not move together, but simply blinked out. Then over the course of the next 5 minutes single lights would appear and then blink out on three more occcasions. No noise or other phenomena were observed.

Our party consisted of three hunters (2 Pepsi Cola employees, and a Pharmacist), and the three ranchers.
