Posted: 5/15/2013
Location: Greenwood, IN
Shape: Fireball
Duration:30 minutes
15+ Fireballs seen in formation in Greenwood Indiana; Bright Red glow changing to an orange than a white flash before returning to red.

Upon leaving my subdivision located off of Fry Road heading north I noticed a line of fireball (red in color; changing to an orange glow that would flash white and then go back to red) in the western sky.

I could count 15 distinct fireballs with a trail of many more beyond that. They were in a line formation hovering (or moving slowly east) about the distance of a small plane above the tree line.

I headed east and went to my destination; upon returning 5-10 minutes later to my neighborhood. I noticed the same fireballs (fewer) in a V formation a little north of my first sightings.

I had called my husband upon the first sighting and told him to look in our backyard. He saw two that disappeared quickly upon his gaze.

I went home and picked him up. We saw 2 in the western sky over a neighborhood directly west of us. One was lower while the second was further up.

We stopped our car almost directly below it and my husband took out his phone to take a pi! cture. I gave him mine with a telephoto lens and while taking the picture it disappeared faster than our eyes could focus.

Upon returning home his picture was just the black sky no fireball and my phone was a white as a piece of paper.

No orbs or lights were seen in either picture.
