Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
3 large silent, slow moving fiery orbs moving across the sky in an arc, one after the other in a timely manner.

9:50 PM After coming home from a walk, the two of us noticed an object in the sky. There were 3 large, fireball-like orbs smoothly traveling their own curved routes, one after the other. They were a bright, rich orange, colored and glowing like fire. The first moved towards us, then turned in path and continued to the left of us (North), dimming increasingly but maintaining its size, pulsating, and controlled demeanor.

About 3 minutes after we first spotted it, right as we were struggling to keep track of it in the distance, the second appeared from the same place the first had in the sky. It seemed to move slightly closer towards us, turned at the same point as the first, and followed in the same direction but in a tighter arc.

When what seemed to be the exact same amount of time in between the first and second sightings had passed, and it was just getting out of sight, the third appeared. After turning, this one made the widest arc and came closest to us by doing so.

Despite standing in the middle of a parking lot, staring up at the sky, commenting, and recording the encounter, it was as if all pedestrian traffic resumed minutes after the third had passed, and the one person who did walk right by us in the middle of the event didn’t seem to notice either us or the sky. There were no clouds and stars were out.
