Never seen anything like it

Me and friend were driving around 9.45 seen fireball in the sky traveling SW. it was lower then a plane.. Looked like a big balloon on fire. Extremely bright.

It went past in a steady but not fast pace. There was no sound or trail. behind it.

As that one went out of sight another came from same direction then went S.At the time my husband was fishing.

When i woke up my husband said on his way home he saw 4 fireball looking things in the sky. This was around 10.45 on another part of the island. He said he was freaked out and came home.he has been fishing a lot of years and said he has never seen anything like that before. He described them as like big fireballs. He said one went right over top of a fishing boat and light it right up. He said at that closest point to him it looked like a lot of different shining lights in a circular moving form. Being approximately 500 yards away.

He said that they came in a row same as the 2 I saw. They traveled in a NE direction1 at a time. He said as 1 went out of sight another appeared. 4 in total.

The 2 I saw I got video of the second.It is not good Quality I was driving and my friend was recording on cell phone.

Also the next day my co worker said driving home that evening something bright in the sky had caught her eye around the same time but she was driving and only got a glance.
