Location: Orange, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10-15 minutes
Three orange-red fireballs, coming from horizon and following upward-right trajectory then fading away, one appearing after the other

On 11/22/14, while standing outside facing West, a silent fireball of orange/red color appeared from the horizon at 21:34. Over the course of a maximum of 4 minutes, it slowly (floating like a lantern) went diagonally up to the right then, at about half way up, it slowly faded then disappeared. Within less than a minute, another fireball appeared, following the exact same trajectory, then faded. About a minute later, a third fireball appeared, floated the same path, then faded away. In total, there were three fireballs within 10 to 15 minutes. We took a video but it is such poor quality that it doesn't seem worth sending.

The three observers are mostly novices to astronomy. Two of the three have, on multiple occasions, seen unidentifiable objects in the sky. However, they have never seen fireballs before the previously mentioned incident, only round objects which emitted a red light which varied in intensity. They moved in a way which did not correlate with the current wind direction.
