Location: Clinton Township, MI
Shape: Fireball
Duration:45 min.
Multiple orange/ red flying orb/fireballs over clinton twp 10:30 p.m

Me and my mother were by Manchester estates hoping to watch some fireworks when around 10:30 pm we noticed something we had never seen before in the sky.

First we had seen just one large orange/red circle that looked as if it was on fire. Trying to explain what we had seen we assumed it had to be a hot air balloon which would explain the fire. After watching it for about 5 minutes a second and third one appeared to the west of it i think it would be. I would also like to add that there were about 10 other people that were there trying to figure out what they were as well.

We then decided to drive to a nearby school and ended up seeing 2 more of the "fireballs". We did not however see any fireworks so we went home. Upon driving up to our house we noticed another one in the sky appearing to be flying north.

These objects were going fairly quick to be a hot air balloon but were at a steady pace and height. There is no way it could have been a meteor. They were definitely flying and not falling. There was no noise or visible trails left by them.

Neither me or my mother believe in aliens. However there has to be an explanation for what these are.
