Location: Harrisburg, PA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 minutes
Several (15-25), bright, fiery looking objects moving in straight line across the sky.

My son and I both witnessed multiple (15-25 total) bright objects in the sky, moving in mostly straight lines.

These objects reminded my son and I of something called “flash paper”, in appearance. They kind of looked like flames, slowly moving across the sky. They did seem to flicker but remained relatively bright, until they disappeared in the sky, maybe in the clouds.

It was pretty much completely calm outside and there was no noise at all, no planes, just silence.

We had a clear view, we live on the side of a small mountain and we were on our deck, watching them in a clear expanse of sky. At the same time, we were able to see a nice bright ring around the moon, kind of in the partly cloudy sky I guess.

It was very eerie in a sense and certainly, in my 44 years, have never seen anything like it.
