6 to 8 fireballs over the Pacific off the North Shore of Oahu

July 11, 2012 At 12:01 am (!) I can’t believe what I just saw, I am flabbergasted.

To the west, over the Pacific, off the North Shore of O’ahu, Hawai’i: I have skylights in my bedroom, and saw six or seven brilliant shapes of fire heading slowly south in a rough formation.

I ran downstairs and outside for a better look. They made no sound. One object actually went "up" a little and crossed the path of another. They did seem to fade away at a fairly high altitude before they disappeared, but they were NOT flares or fireworks. There was no smoke coming from them. They appeared to be about the distance a helicopter would fly, but it was difficult to determine. They could have been much higher.

We do have major military installations of all branches on the island, and I can only think it was some activity from them, but WHAT!!!! They were very bright, orange flame-like and very large. They do not seem like something meant to "light a battlefield."

I’m sure many other people saw them. I just couldn’t take my eyes off them, and did not have my phone handy, so no pictures. BOOOO! I did write a quick note to one of the TV news websites. What a mystery!
