|Red and Yellow Fire Ball. 3 formed a triangle at two different times.
Per the request of the information, I saw some lights over Carrollton, Michigan, west of the Saginaw Bay on Saturday June 23 between 10-11 PM EST. I was heading out to get some takeout at Taco Bell when I saw two lights in the sky. I assumed they were two military helicopters with their spot lights on because of the formation they were in however I had my window down and there was no sound. These lights were much larger than a star or planet however smaller than the moon. They were in the Northeastern sky heading south. After turning on a different street I lost sight of them however with such heavy cloud cover due to an approaching storm, I assumed they went into the clouds. On my way home I noticed these lights again when I turned onto Michigan Avenue this time in the northwestern sky however these three lights were in a triangular shaped form or I should say they formed a triangle. There were three separate lights though. In the southwestern s! ky I started to see several single lights heading from the southwest towards the three triangular forming lights so they were heading northeast. As I approached Church Street still heading south, I noticed that these lights were still there but this time I could see one over the treetops and it looked like a flickering flame in the shape of a ball. I was say a red and yellow fireball with a yellow circular glow around it. I saw several people watching these lights and taking pictures. When I got home, I alerted my parents, and they came out with me to watch them now they were in the Northeastern and heading northeastern. They formed a zigzagged line with the exception of three more created a triangular formation. I checked the weather per the directions of the report and it stated that the winds were 10-15 MPH W/NW. Not sure what these were but wanted to alert someone seeing I have not heard anything on the news. The picture of the fireballs in the report examp! le is very similar to what I saw moving in the sky. Being an ! amateur astronomer, meaning a novice, I do know what stars, galaxies, satellites, planets and other celestial bodies look like. These were nothing like anything I have seen before.
