Location: Lansing, MI
Shape: Teardrop
Duration:1 minute
Bright orange, teardrop-shaped objects at low altitude moving in a straight line.

We saw bright orange (like flame, not lights) teardrop-shaped objects moving roughly east in a straight line. On this evening we saw two of them approximately five minutes apart. The evening was still, but we could hear no noise coming from them.

They resembled hot air balloons on fire except they were traveling much too fast, at about the speed and altitude of a private plane. Also, the intensity of the light did not diminish as though something was actually on fire in the sky. They were far too slow to be meteorites.

Fireworks were going on about two miles west, or perhaps just finishing. These objects looked too large to be flaming debris.

Five days prior several of us saw three of these objects over about an hour's time. Sky/weather conditions and description were as above, except no fireworks were going on.
