Shape: Fireball
Duration:2:45
Two red balls of fire rise into the sky...hover...and fly away from us.

We were watching the International Space Station pass by.

Then, after it flew out of sight, we turned toward the north and saw what looked like a red ball of fire rising straight up from the horizon. It stopped rising about halfway in the sky and began to hover.

Then a second red ball of fire rose from the horizon just to the right of the first light. It stopped and hovered at the exact same height as the first.

They both remained hovering...moving slightly every once in awhile.

Then, the first ball appeared to begin moving away from us and disappeared. The second red ball then did the same.

No sound was heard. (We could see aircraft approaching from the northeast on a normal pattern for our area.).
