|Huge Fireballs going east in the sky by Sallisaw Oklahoma!
My children and I were driveing west on I40 going to Sallisaw Oklahoma. We were about 15 to 20 miles from Sallisaw when my children were asking me if what they were seeing in the sky was an airplane. I looked out my windshield to the left and saw a big fireball. You could see the flames it was red in color. It had to have been huge and it was moving faster than an airplane but it did not shoot across the sky like a shooting star. It was a bit alarming to see a fireball coming across the sky like that. We watched it for about 5 minutes when it disappeared for about 15 seconds and then reappeared again. This is when we noticed two other fireballs. They were going in a triangle shape going east in the sky. Just about 5 miles from the Sallisaw exit the first one disappeared. The fire seemed to disappear from the front and then from the back and then nothing. The second fireball did the same as the first. The third fireball we watched when we pulled off the first Sallisaw exit. We watched until we turned onto the street and the trees got in our way. We will never forget what we had seen.
