Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
Seven red / orange fireball lights hovering in formation.

My husband was driving home down our dead end road when he noticed a number of fireball (red / orange) lights to his right, in the North/Northeast sky (in the area of the Pleiades.) He pulled over and exited his car to get a better look, the fireballs appeared to be hovering in the sky and coming together in formation. A neighbor pulled his car behind my husband's vehicle, exited, and asked "What the hell is that?" In complete awe my husband answered "I have no idea, never seen anything like it before!" My husband got back into his vehicle drove the few yards to our parking lot, exited his vehicle a second time, looked up and could see only one of the red/orange fireballs remaining, as it headed off up into the sky in a Northwest direction. Tonight's weather conditions are mostly cloudy, winds East/Southeast 5 - 10 miles per hour.
