Duration: 5 minutes
No of observers: 2

Location: Charleston, WV, USA

Shape: Fireball
Characteristics: Left a trail

It was late evening. Had grabbed a burger from a drive thru and was setting with my daughter in a parking lot when we saw the objects. They were somewhat above a football field where an event was taking place and an air show was scheduled the following day at a near by airport. We chalked it up to the air show or the event at the field at the time but I was watching a tv show today that had very similar objects. They were like fireballs but not exactly. They had a trail that followed them when they moved but then they would move and stop and become round again. At first they seemed to be something falling like a meteor but stopped and hovered or moved side to side. One split into several different balls. I have 2 videos which I will send. I posted the videos on Facebook and an ex military friend of mine said it was the air rangers from the show practice jumping so we never thought anything else about it until I just saw the TV show with the same balls we saw, so I decided to report it just so someone else could take a look because I’m not so sure. That said, I’ll send the videos and you can see for yourself.


Parachute jumpers w/ flares. PD
