Duration:10 minutes
Nine orange glowing fireballs Court St west end New Bedford Ma heading southeast about 8 PM.

My two daughters and I where walking the dog on Florence street heading south towards Court street when approaching the corner my older daughter seen the first orange ball. Then another two followed it they seem to glow but also looked like a balls of fire. They seemed to move quickly but where silent and it was hard to judge the height. I told my girls to let's go around the corner to get a better look as we turned the corner we watched them go southeast towards St Lukes hospital. My daughter then said look daddy theres more, which was another three that travelled the same route but seemed a little lower. We are now walking down Court street which is a oneway heading east we watched them as we walked about three blocks we seen the last three come over the house behind us again going the same direction. As we walked another block we seen a lady walking on James St turning on Court and I asked if she seen the lights she said yes. My youngest daughter was cry! ing about she was scared of the fire. The four of us seen a couple on a porch on Court between James and Tremont he was recording the last ones we seen which actually looked like they moved together as one. Then when we got closer to the house we seen a group of teenagers 6 of them or so who said they had seen them also. I tried to take two videos only one could you see a little but it's only a two megapixel phone camera. I would like to know if anyone could explain these. Thank you.
