Location: Virginia Beach, VA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 5 minutes
Son, wife and I driving down the road shortly after dark.

She noticed them first so I pulled over to look too. 3 of what looked to be fireballs traveling directly vertical at a fast pace. The orientation was if they had launched 3 rockets one right after another.

At first I just thought maybe it was a launch from nasal at Wallops Island. However, the launch pad at Wallops launch pad was destroyed a few weeks ago when the rocket exploded.

We watched and tried to video it but you can't really tell anything on the video.

After they reached a very high altitude the "fire" went out but we could still kind of see them. Almost as if they had turned white or traveled through the atmosphere.
