Location: Springfield, IL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 minute
Red ball steadily across night sky followed by second one 4 min later

Reddish flaming light ball moved steadily across sky as wife and friends sitting on back deck. Moved from west to south in the night sky. No green light nor any kind of flashing lights.

About 4 minutes later, a second one going about the same speed goes by using similar path. Interesting ... the ISS went by exacting hour later. What we saw earlier was very much different. I originally thought it was a meteor, but ruled it out when the second one went by. In my 40 years watching the sky since I was a kid, I never saw anything like it.
