Posted: 1/26/2015
Location: Spring, TX
Shape: Fireball
Duration:8-10 minutes
7 fireballs take exact path in sky at intervals.

Walking dog in neighborhood I noticed 1st reddish what appeared like a ball of fire. It did not ascend but just appeared in sky. About 40 sec later a 2nd and another 40 sec a 3rd. They took exact same path. About 3-4 min later it happened again like the aforementioned. Then 3-4 min later it was just 1 but same appearance and same path as previous 6.

I am a pilot so know aircraft lighting configurations and they were not aircraft and it was very quiet, no noise of jets.

I thought maybe those Chinese lanterns, but they did not ascend from ground, just suddenly appeared in sky, approx. 45 degrees from horizon.
