Orange fireballs over Orlando after satellite launch.

Around 8:15 pm, my uncle and I were in my back yard talking after watching a rocket launch at Cape Canaveral through our binoculars at about 7:42 pm. We witnessed wave after wave of orange flame like balls of light coming from the west and heading east northeast. They first started going over in pairs and then the rest were staggered.

Objects appeared to be moving at around 800 to 1000 mph at about three thousand feet altitude. On some of the objects the flame would go dim but you could still see a blue glow around the object and track it across the sky. The objects made no noise and were probably five miles to the north of us as they crossed the sky.

I am a ten year naval aviation veteran and my uncle is a retired airforce veteran. Neither one of us has ever seen anything like that before.
