Shape: Fireball
Duration:15 minutes
A series of 7 flaming type objects crossing the night sky from South to North lasting 15 minutes.

(Late 50s married couple walking dog after dinner) A reddish flaming object moving toward us in the night sky, appearing/feeling like a hot air balloon, but moving horizontally too fast. Might have been something above the flame, wavering. Seemed to be rising as it moved from South/SouthWest to North/NorthEast passing by us slightly to the West. It faded into the distance, perhaps two minutes from coming into view until it disappeared to the North.

Several minutes later as we approached other pedestrians(3 young men) we asked if they had seen it. "No." Pointing up to where it had come from, we saw another on roughly the same path. They all saw it. In the next 5-10 minutes we all saw a pair traveling fairly close together, with one passing the other, and then three more individual "flames" on the same route.

There was an aircraft passing roughly perpendicularly further South and much higher.
