Location: Newcomersotown, OH
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
rouned oranged object with a plume of flame or smoke in the rear.

At 9:30 pm I was in my back yard when I saw a orange ball of light appear over the horizon from the northwest. It moved very quickly and seemed to be at a very high altitude. It was ball shaped and had a column or plume of red at the rear that reminded be of the exhaust on a rocket. (Although there have never been any rocket launches over Ohio that I know of.) I used my cellphone camera to take a photograph of the fireball.

A few minutes later, a very similar object appeared from the same direction and held the same course across the sky. I photographed this object also.

After another few minutes another fireball appeared and behaved in an identical manner. I took a third photograph.
