Three orange/red fireballs over Madison's West Side.

Was driving eastbound on the Beltline and clearly saw 2 fireballs hovering in the sky. They were orange in the center and radiating red around the outside. They were large compared to red lights from airplane towers in the background. They were situated between the Capitol and the West Side. I got off on Midvale where I picked up my husband. We drove to an elementary school on Midvale where we stopped our car and got out to look. At this point there were now 3 fireballs. 2 hovering next to each other, and one moving southwest very slowly toward Fitchburg/Verona. They were fairly low (helicopter height), but made no noise and did not move except for the one traveling slowly.

We got back in our car to see if we could drive closer to them, got on the Beltline continuing toward the downtown area, and lost sight of them.
