Posted: 1/6/2017
Location: San Antonio, TX
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 minutes
On new years at about 12:30am, my father and I observed an object in the sky appearing red at a distance but then turned bright orange with a flicker of red as it flew closer.

The object hovered over our street originating from the south. It flew in a quarter circle pattern over the convent property across from us as it dimmed its light and dissapeared. Two identical objects followed after the first object in the same pattern at the same speed and dissapeared at the exact same spot as the first.

The only conclusion I can come to, what ever they were, they must have been drawn by the fireworks. They appeared to have been observing them as they hovered over our street at a very low altitude.

I never saw an aircraft, nor did I hear an engine sound or propeller sounds and it made no contrail as it flew by.

I only saw three separate individual orange redish lights in the sky.
