Shape: Sphere
Duration:45 minutes
A series of bright orange spheres that appeared and then vanished.

This event occurred as a series of orange spheres in the night sky over the ocean that lit up for a second or two, and then dimmed. The first bright red/orange light that got our attention looked almost like a super-sighting of Mars at first, but then we realized that it was way too close, too large, and too bright. Then it went out.

Over the next 45 minutes, bright orange spheres high in the sky lit up in the same area - then went out, sometimes in a row of three, sometimes forming an angle.

On two occasions, six in a tight row lit up in quick sequence, then went out. These were the last we spotted. There were perhaps 25 light-ups in all.

These were NOT fireworks--way too high in the sky and out over the ocean.

They did not rise or fall or leave any sort of trail; they just appeared and then vanished.

I've never had any experience with anything like this before, nor do I have any possible explanation.
