Shape: Fireball
Duration:10-12 Minutes
Six objects with the appearance of an orange afterburner glow traveling in sequence and seemingly spaced evenly on same path.

While skying watching from our deck, spotted a bright orange object on a northern trajectory from the south. The rate of speed seemed to be much slower then any meteor that I've seen in the past.

As I pointed the first object out to my son and as the first object seemed to fade behind clouds to the north the second object appeared to the south.

My son stepped into the house to tell my wife what we were seeing and as he did a third object appeared. As he returned to the deck the fouth appeared and we proceeded to watch a fifth and six object arrive.

All six objects appeared to be on an identical trajectory. They all seemed to slow at a point when we were looking at them towards the east. Having been in the Navy they had more of an appearance of missles inflight.

No noise, no vapor trails. One did appear to eject a lighted objected at the end of it's run and another appear to be somewhat elongated with lights down the side.

From time spotted in the southern sky to their burn out or disappearnce to the north took about two minutes each.

I have seen objects from my deck for the past several years and one similiar sighting just about four or five days before this one. This one appeared to come from the east.

We have continuous air traffic over our house and I these objects were not planes. Very, very curious and hoping for some kind of explanation.
