Location: Middle Island (Long Island), NY
Shape: Fireball
Duration:20 minutes
Orange Glowing Lights over East Long Island.

Was outside home smoking when I noticed a roundish orange/yellow ball, no sound, moving smoothly and quick across the night sky from the northwest to southeast. I immediately new this was not an ordinary aircraft and ran in the house and called for my children to hurry outside. While watching the 1st object another followed in the same flight path a few minutes later, quickly followed by another. There was no sound! No flashing lights! Moved to smooth and fast for a plane or helicopter. They looked like orange fiery balls of light!

Ended up seeing a total of 5 over a 20 minute period.

Have photos and some video. I (we) have never seen anything like this. I am skeptical usually and am not someone who WANTS to find or see something but this has me really wondering what I saw.
