Location: Joliet, IL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 min
20-25 fireballs over Joliet,Il.

Driving south on I-55 near US52. A flash in the clouds got my attention, looked up and seen 20-25 orange/red lights moving S.E. to N.W. as these lights reached cloud deck, I was able to see white trails behind them and then disappearing. Too high for fireworks, and "chinese lanterns" would have moving in a cross direction due to wind. Winds were coming off of Lake Michigan in a S.W. direction.
