Location: Bozeman, MT
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 minutes
4 lights/fireballs travelling from north to east, moving slowly. No sound.

10:40/10:42 PM approximately. Watched a red light in the sky moving from north to east in the horizon. Looked for awhile to determine if it was a plane/firework, it moved very slowly, slowed down, gained speed, slowed down again until it disappeared.

Then, ANOTHER one appeared from approximately the same starting point as this first one, and it was the same colored red fireball like light, brighter than an airplane, but not much bigger. A brilliant red light which glowed. It proceeded the same way, and then a second one appeared (this would be a total of three at this point, with the first one disappeared.)

Then the second red light disappeared, and I watched the other one proceed. It seemed to just slowly meander, slow down a bit, then pick up speed again.

And a fourth appeared just after the third disappeared, again from roughly the same place as the original one. I watched it move about and then it also disappeared. There were some clouds in the night sky, no stars were visible.

These brilliant red glowing fireballs or lights could not have been meteors, they moved way too slow, and their motion was not that of an airplane, they seemed to weave back and forth a bit, as if they could go in any direction they choosed, they were a strange red color that I would not associate with a red airplane light, and they 'appeared' and disappeared slowly.

This couldn't have been a plane going in circles, unless planes can teleport themselves these days... nor helecopters, there was no sound.
