Reported: 4/21/2007 2:48:25 PM 14:48
Posted: 4/27/2007
Location: Alfreton (UK/England),
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 mins. approx.
4 fireballs in total, 1st 3 formed triangle...then gradually disappeared...4th hovered in same area before also disappearing.

I was stood at the back door smoking a cigarette, when I noticed a bright ball of fire double the size of an aircraft from a similar angle. I thought at first it was an aeroplane on fire. Within a few seconds another "fireball" appeared following the first one. The 2 fireballs travelled across the sky, then hovered in the same spot for a while. Then a 3rd fireball appeared, and travelled to the area where the first 2 were still hovering, where all 3 formed a triangle. As the 3rd one appeared I called to my partner who had gone to the toilet upstairs. She came down and also witnessed the 3rd one travelling towards the still remaining 2 fireballs. The first 2 were now getting smaller, whilst the 3rd one hovered for a while...probably 30 seconds before starting to get smaller. As the 3rd was getting smaller a 4th appeared. This 4th one travelled the same way as the previous 3, and again hovered for a while before getting smaller until it had also disappeared.
