Location: Lancaster, NY
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 minutes
Silent Orange/red fireballs coming from the south and became smaller as they moved away

Totally silent fireballs rising from the south horizon. At least 7 of them, but not all at once. At they rose higher in the sky, they became smaller, until we realized they were losing their brightness as they were moving farther away. At one point, they stopped in the same spot in the sky (we actually have an airplane beacon behind our house out in the field). They all eventually went in different directions in the sky. There were airplanes in the sky in the distance and at one point, it looked like the plane and object came very close. My husband saw them first after taking the dog outside and than called us out to look. My 14 year old son and my 11 year old daughter were also witnesses. Lasted for approximately 5 minutes or so. I would imagine that we weren't the only ones to see the objects. Buffalo International airport is only about 3 miles away.
