Duration:4 minutes
Fireballs (4) flew over

I went out on my deck for a smoke tonight and finally had the chance to see the fireballs everyone has been reporting for the past 3 years.I live on eastern Long Island, and same a bright red fireballs approach from the southern horizon. Estimated speed was 80 to 160 MPH. Craft were silent. Went from south to north. Reminded me of a helicopter speed and altitude. Not a chinese lantern! Deep red with flickering inside, and died out as it passed over my house. No wind and scattered clouds. 3 more passed over at 1 exactly minute intervals, and exact same flight path. Total of 4, and I tried to take camcorder pictures, but would not focus due to being night. My opinion is it has some type of silent propulsion system, but I cannot give honest opinion as to what it is. Not an aircraft, (larger and faster and silent than a aircraft). Definitely under intelligent control, either from aboard craft or remote. Very unusual,I am 60 yoa and have never seen this before. Let me repeat, after watching 4 go over at rather high speed, they are NOT chinese lanterns, planes, satellites, etc. Cannot explain what I saw.
