Duration: 15 minutes
|"Fireballs" (n=2) Moving in a southwest to north direction.
The first ball came from a southwest direction was moving slightly slower than a plane, which was very bright at first, similar to a ball of fire. What was most notable was that there was “drippings” or embers of fire or what have you from the bottom of the object. The object then slowed down considerably and continued on its northerly path with the fireball decreasing in size until it completely dissipated.
The second object moved in a relatively similar direction but instead of continuing the same directional course as the first fireball, the second moved upwards in the sky until it slowed to a halt and dissipated.
It should be noted, that there was no noise, smoke, or trails associated with these objects. To the best of the observers knowledge fireworks were not at play nor could the objects be attributed to flares.
