Location: Wilmington, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:20 min.
I saw floating fire ball in the sky about 3:15 am . It looked like it was flicking and dropping small fire balls that would disappear

I cant remember the exact date but its between June of 2000 and August 2001. I wanted to report the incidents before but didnt know who or where to report it to until I came across your website. I was going through the archives and I noticed other reports of similar sightings around the time I experienced my sightings.

On three different occasions Me and a couple of friends were smoking a ciggarette outside around 3:15 am when we noticed a bright orange object in the sky. At first we thought it was a flare but it couldnt be, because the object was not coming down. We observed what I can describe as a fireball floating very slowly and decending from East to NorthWest for about 15 minutes until the object floated behind the houselines. That was approximately 2.5 to 3 miles from where we were at. On the second occasion around the same time and location in Wilmington about 3 months later. Me and one of the other witnesses from the first sighting were outside and noticed 2 Similar objects coming from the same direction. It was very similar to the first sighting but now there were 2 objects. On the third occasion about 6 mos later, around 4 am.I saw a fireball in the sky coming from the east. It was floating and dropping smaller fireballs as it dissapeared then it would flicker and then it got bigger and at 1 point it got so small that it dissapeared and then it would reappear, It did that a couple of times then it dissapeared completely. The 3 sightings happened on a weekend.
