Location: Medina, OH
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
2 fireballs, same pattern, silent.

On 11/5/13 around 8:20pm in Medina City (Medina County), I saw a red/orange fireball going across my window from south to north. I went outside because I knew there would be a second fireball as I have seen this twice since August. Sure enough, about 2 min later the same kind of fireball following the same path went by. Sighting is silent.

Previous sightings were around August 31st near Lake Erie and October 5th in Mohican (Knox County). Different times of night. I have a video, but it’s not very clear as the object was moving too quickly.

I would say it was a Chinese lantern but it was moving too fast and following the exact pattern, also I question as to why there would only be two each time.
