Duration:15 seconds
I saw bright light balls with tails flying outside our 24th floor apt. window.

I saw roundish, very bright balls of light with tails. They were flying all in a row and there were about 10-15 of them. All of a sudden outside our window about 100 feet away, going west to east was a bright light that got my attention. When I immediately looked out I saw almost out of nowhere were these balls of light with tails flying totally in a straight line. I've never seen anything like it. I proceded to call the St. Clair Shores police dept. to ask if anyone else had seen what I saw. They said they didn't have any other reports. I then called my mom, two girlfriends(that I didn't get ahold of) and my fiance and described what I saw. I was then informed about the metior showers but it didn't look like that to me. It was going west to east horizontally in a line, not vertically. My mom then heard the program on the radio and called me to tell me other people saw exactly what I saw and they were describing it on the radio. I live in Southeast lower Michigan and someone said at 19:04 someone reported it in Northern Michigan. I also called our local T.V. station to report what I saw after hearing the radio broadcast.
