Four orange fireballs traveling together , fly over the house

Three orange fireballs appeared out of thin air coming straight at us, out of the south, one after another they turned and headed due east! Was able to observe these with Celestron 15x70 Skymaster binoculars. Objects were observed at a 45 degree angle and what I would estimate a thousand feet. These objects then turned, following each other, heading due east over towards the Rincon mountains.

Once they had gone from sight, a fourth orange fireball appeared going what seemed to be twice as fast to catch up with the other ones. These all appeared brilliant orange, with the binoculars it was amazing!

After talking to all involved with the incident, we agreed that they were the size of a basketball. They were so close and with the binoculars you could see the center was a brighter orange than the outer ring which flowed backward behind the objects as they moved.
