Shape: Fireball
Duration:~5 minutes
Two red-orange fireballs flying silently over Tampa

Saw two red-orange objects that looked like very bright fireballs, one trailing the first (about three closed fists together at arm's length separation between them) flying silently from the south to the northwest at just before 1am visible for a few minutes (neighborhood tree tops on the south to very low clouds on the northwest).

These looked two to three times larger and brighter than the ISS. The line of flight was about 70 degrees high from the west.
