Six Fireballs Spotted

This evening, July 4, 2011, my family and I went outside to watch the fireworks being let off in the areas surrounding our neighborhood. As we watched the display, I noticed a nearly steady orange ball of light move across the sky, moving from the north to the south.

I initially thought it was a burning ember being blown away from the fireworks, but the light continued as the object moved almost the complete distance of the visible sky. As it moved past us and on further south, it flickered a few times and then went out.

We stayed outside for about half and hour, and during that time we saw a total of six of these objects moved across the sky in the same direction. They didn’t follow the same path as each other, but they all did move north to south, some of them extinguishing their light sooner than others. They were not all grouped together, but at one time there were two of them in the sky at the same time.

During this time, there were various airplanes flying overhead, so you could see the difference in their lights. These objects did not have the flashing lights that the airplanes did.
