8 red burning orbs from south to north, below the cloud cover.
First red orb spotted at 21:30, 10/06/2018 due south, rising at a speed about twice that of an air craft. Second orb became visible about a minute later. Both orbs remained visible as they flew directly overhead, heading north and disappeared into the north horizon. No sound was noticeable and remained in view 4-5 minutes. Neither of the original two had much of a trail, but one had visible break off like a flare that burned up within a second or two. Less than a minute after the first two disappeared, the third and the fourth came into view from the same southern location. One was larger than the first ones and had a noticeable tail to it. These two also released items that quickly burned up.
There was complete overcast with no visible stars or a moon, so these were very low in our atmosphere. In total, there were 8 and they spread out into longer intervals between. Eventually only one in view at a time. The whole event lasted about 40 minutes. Some never made it to the far horizon, but at least 3/4 of the way. The ones that didn’t flickered out without any debris.
There were four of us that witnessed this and none of us have seen anything like it.
Possible sky lanterns??? PD
