|Fireballs over Massillon, Ohio that formed a triangle and took off
My wife and I and a neighbor witnessed what looked like 7-10 balls/orbs of light headed towards us as we were driving in a residential area. We pulled over to take a look. The lights were just above tree height and approx 1 mile away in a non organized staggered arrangement. They were flying in a southerly direction when all of a sudden one by one they cut to the east and disappeared. Speed was slow and steady. No marker lights like an airplane would have.
After we thought they were gone, we stood around talking and then headed back to our car and the neighbor headed towards her front door, they were coming back from the same direction. When they reached the tree line, they dissipated and then suddenly an upside down triangle begin to form with the same lights in no particular order. Once formed, they broke off and headed east one-by-one again.
Within 3-5 seconds of the lights disappearing, a Southwest jet went right through the airspace on approach to Akron Canton Airport. They had to have seen it.
Color was reddish yellow, no sound, no tails
