Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 minute
I was awake feeding our 3 month old, when suddenly a bright & large colored orange ball flew up from the horizon. It was moving smoothly and quickly, and within a matter of seconds was joined by a second ball.

I put on my glasses, & woke my husband so that a second person could witness the object as well. He seemed as astonished & perplexed as I was. The 2nd ball caught up to the 1st. The seems to hover at the same height for a few moments, then the second one vanished.

The first did more of a shrink, or slow fade until it seemed to be nothing more than a small, red, pulsing star on a descent.

Finally it disappeared altogether. No noise accompanied the sighting.

A few minutes later an aircraft flew by across the night sky, with its usual blinking wingtip lights.

Based on the aircraft's position & size, the balls of light flew much higher into the sky & were much larger.
