Location: Choctaw Beach, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
A series of 15-18 orange fireballs.

Starting at about 22:05 and lasting until 22:19 bright orange fireballs would "explode" much like a flare usually three at a time spaced about 1 second apart. The fireballs would remain illuminated for about 1 to 2 seconds each. These may well have been flares but they did not seem to originate from the ground but rather in the air. It was almost as if they were being dropped by a plane but there was no plane seen. I almost thought that these were part of a paratroop drop.
