Location: Ocean Park, WA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 minutes
6 orange fireballs travel slowly across the southwestern WA night sky.

Two of us saw 6 orange, pulsating, orbs rising from the ocean or the horizon in the WNW, ascending to about 60 degrees above the horizon and traveling slowly to the SE before fading from view. When viewed in binoculars and in a telescope, the objects appeared to be like burning fireballs. The first orb rose and traveled to near overhead by itself. A few minutes later, four orbs rose in succession, spaced about 10 degrees apart traveling in the same path as the first, heading SSE After they disappeared, a sixth orb traveled in the same path. The wind at the time was from the NE, 1 to 3 mph. The night was clear and the objects made no sound.
