Shape: Light
Duration:10 min
Zigzagging fire in the sky.

I just got off work and was walking out to my car. I looked across the parking lot, back towards my workplace, and I saw approx. 7 lights in the sky across the Ohio River, over the hills of Greenup County, Kentucky, which was west in direction. 6 of the lights were always lit and one light would disappear and another light would 'turn on' in a seperate place. This went on for about 2 minutes and stopped.

I got in my car and was driving West bound on US 52 in Sciotoville, Ohio, and over the hills of Sciotoville I saw something that streaked across the sky zigzagging up and down and it was on fire. The object left a trail of what looked like fire in the sky as it went. The whole path the object followed was not on 'fire' all at once though, I would compare the firery trails in the sky to condensation lines left in the sky from commercial jets but they didn't stick around as long, the trails disappeared very quickly after the object left that part of the sky.

The object headed from north to south and unlike any meterorite I've ever seen it didn't just fade out; the object stopped in the sky, got real bright, and then just disappeared. This happened about 5 minutes after I saw the disappearing and reappearing lights in the sky and was at a different location.

No sound was heard at either of these events.
