3 controlled fireballs in the sky

My wife and I came back home after a supper with my Mom. It was about 7PM and a very clear evening. Getting out of the parked car I noticed 3 fireballs in the sky. They seemed about as big as a car. What amazed me about these fireballs was their control. They were putting on a show it seemed. They took off in three different directions, then two of them came back in an arc and passed each other head on. I called out my neighbor, a bell telephone engineer, ('m an Industrial Engineer) to watch, or witness. He was as amazed as I was. The fireballs then took off together and went at an angle that they disappeared into the horizon.

((NUFORC Note: Ordinarily, with this type of report, we would first ask whether the witness might have been observing advertising lights "playing" in the sky. However, if the witness is an industrial engineer, we presume he would have been able to rule out such a possibility immediately. PD))
