Witnessed a pink fireball making small circles in the sky around 71st ST & HWY 169. At first glance it appeared to be fireworks but the fireball maintained an altitude of approximately 1000 ft and circled about a minute before breaking up into 2 separate balls that circled and eventually burned out. They were slightly larger than the helicopter that was circling them at a much wider radius. I didn't hear any reports of "anything wierd" on my mobile scanner. I know that I wasn't the only one who seen this because this is a heavily populated area and the helicopter was circling it. Maybe it was only fireworks but I have never seen fireworks that lasted that more than a few seconds.


We at first thought the witness might be describing the events that were observed at approximately 1930 hrs.over Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. However, the witness appears to be certain about the date. We will attempt to confirm. PD
