|Fireballs in the North joined by others moving slowly from the South East then they drift upwards getting smaller disappearing
Myself and two neighbors observed three very large orange red lights in the sky moving slowly from the South East to the North where they hovered above us. One of them then rose getting smaller and disappeared.. About that same time we noticed another two bright orange red lights to the South East which slowly moved into the same area of the sky joining the other two lights. They were all silent. There was no sound of a burner as with a hot air balloon. A second and then a third one of them rose getting smaller and disappeared. The last two remained for a while longer. I was able to get my father and my sister and her boyfriend out of the house to also observe these last two bright lights, before they also rose getting smaller and disappeared.
At the brightest they were ten times brighter than the brightest planet and much larger. They seemed to have a reflected light equally as bright as their primary light, though almost on top of it, and slightly to the top left. Sometimes they moved in formation or joined or left the formation.
