Duration:2 minutes
Red/Orange Fireballs in the Sky

I stepped outside at approximately 9:45 PM and looked north. I saw one large bright red/orange ball, glowing very brightly, traveling from east to west. A second ball appeared from behind the trees just a little higher than the first's path, then a third followed immediately after. No more followed these 3.

They were traveling very close to a typical flight path where I tend to see airplanes, but these were larger than a normal airplane light and were not blinking.
