Posted: 1/26/2015
Location: Austin, TX
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 8 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
5 silent odd shaped fireballs on precise path, evenly spaced from south turning east to horizon.

Standing n front yard. Well lit but dark for suburbs. First saw an odd shaped light appx due east, appeared to maybe be rising in elevation. At first mistook it for aircraft. No sound though highway noise was present. It appeared to be sort of floating but still moving away. Just didn't move right. Slowly faded above and behind treeline. As first one faded a second appeared from due south above treeline moved north and arced east on exact same path as previous. Identical flight pattern and characteristics and craft appearance.

As it faded to the exact same location as the previoius another appeared from exact same location on same path. This repeated for a total of 4 craft after the first. Very strange shaped lights, flight behavior, path and movement. No noise.

First thought: Airplane/Jetliner Second thought: Helicopter Third thought: Absolutely no idea.

If it's a helicopter or jet, its not like any I've ever seen.

My 11 year old son grabbed my phone and we videoed the last one. Video sucks but I \ve got it.Its from my phone.

We know it's probably explainable but really want ot know what it was. So if you could help us figure that part out that would be great.

Night is overcast no stars visible.
