Location: Cranston, RI
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 minute
2 fireballs, bright white interiors, bright red flaming edges, moved SW across the sky, then disappered one at a time.

Thursday, June 14, 2012, about 11:00 PM. Cranston, RI (Edgewood section). I was inside and walking up my stairs when a bright light caught my eye outside the window. I looked out and saw two very bright, large, fireballs moving across the sky, one some distance behind the other. They seemed to be travelling the same path, at the same speed, as if one was following the other and they were moving from away from my house, towards the southwest.

Immediately, I thought they could not be planes. They were both very bright – their interior color was white/gold and the outer part of the balls was bright red, with a star-like, flaming appearance. They did not look in any way how planes look in a night sky – no flashing lights, only one glowing ball, as opposed to several small lights, etc.

Because they appeared so unusual, I wondered if the thick glass of my window was distorting the light and causing the flame-like appearance and the color separation of the white/gold and red. I went downstairs to a window that I could open that does not have a screen in it, and the balls looked exactly the same – bright white/gold interiors and red flame-like edges.

They continued to move on the same path, away from me, toward the southwest, one behind the other, and then the one in the front and furthest away from me just disappeared from view (as opposed to fading away as it got further and further away.) Then the second one disappeared.
