Location: Grays, SC
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 min
2 fire balls hovering large in size and then quickly blink out in sequence.

While doing a little night riding on my ATV down a local dirt road, I along with my passenger (a family member) noticed 2 fireball like lights above the tree tops less than 1 mile away. We where able to see these objects in the clearing we had entered. We immediately stopped and begin watching the 2 stationary lights. The lights seemed to glow slightly red and orange and where much larger and brighter than any thing else in the sky to include the standard air traffic and stars. They then faded out one after the other at the same rate of speed.

I can assure you, being former USAF Crash Rescue, they were not aircraft, flares, or any other normal objects. Nether of us were surprised about seeing the objects, we have witnessed a number of different unknown objects separately. I recently found that as many as 5 other Firefighters and paramedics (1 while on duty) may have also witnessed this sighting, as well as a similar sighting 2 weeks earlier.

(Note: I am a member of SC MUFON, I thought I'd just pass this along to you.)
