4 red fireballs near Snake River Canyon.

As I was headed home from work, I noticed a bright light in my front windshield in the upper right hand corner. I pretty much paid no attention and figured it to be the usual aircraft with blinking lights.

After a moment I spotted another bright reddish light object below and to the left of the first one just above the horizon and continuing to follow the first object horizontally and the straight up into the sky. I pulled the car over and observed them both for a few minutes the first one then accelerated a bit and went straight up, thru, into and above the clouds.. I could see it all the way with light of the full moon above. The second object followed the first one's course.

I picked up my cellphone from the back seat and tried to figure out who to call..shaking like a madman..I then left the phone, went to the front of the car and 2 more objects appeared from behind a foreground hill like mound and they proceeded in a due line across and just above the horizon from the left to right. At this time..with no luck.. I was pointing at the objects and trying to get vehicles passing to stop and observe.

The third object followed the other 2 into the clouds and he last one I watched as it slowed to a complete stop and dimmed.

All 4 of the red fireballs were moving on a Northeast to Northwest heading.. No sound, No smell, it was 17 F degree according to my car gauge..the night was clear and still below the cloud ceiling. The objects were 1/10th to quarter mile away and were the size of a nickel held in hand at arm's length. All of them were bright red/whitish in color with flame like streamers steamimg from the top and they had a revolving lighter red outer.

I checked with the local TV and newspaper media and no one else reported them,,as far as I know I am the only witness to the sighting. I watched them for around 15 minutes. This was on the old Jerome highway I mile west of the intersection where interstate 93 joins the old Jerome highway on the south side of road between there and the Snake River Canyon Rim. Coincidentally was just a few hundred yards south of the cell phone tower.
