Fiery oval object makes se appearances in the Southern Michigan skies

8 people witnessed this object 2 seperate times, within 45 minutes of each other. First sighting, object was in the North Westerly sky. Very Cloudy night, so much so that you could not see thru the cloud layer to the sky above it. This object was slowly raising straight up at a pretty constant pace. It can be described as a oval shaped, that had a fiery apprearance. The object did not make any noise, nor did it emit any smoke, or anything that would lead you to believe it was actually on fire. The color resembled a molten lava appearance, flickering similar to a candle. It did not have a strobe light, or any flashing lights visible. This object slowly raised, almost hovered, until it raised thru the cloud line. About 45 minutes later, we seen the object again. This time, the clouds in the sky had broken up a bit. Still mostly cloudy, but you could see patches of stars between. The Object was coming from the direction we had previously seen it. H! owever, it was not rising up, but rather traveling in a Northwest to SouthEast direction, eventually traveling pretty close to over our heads. At no point was their any audible sound from this craft. The object was moving much quicker this time, but still had the same, Fiery, flickering appearance. Once this object traveled over our heads, it actually picked up speed traveling to the South. It then actually made a subtle dart from left to right at one point, making all of us watching actually scream "did you see that" at the same time. The most amazing part was still to come. As we all watched this glowing fireball pick up speed, there was a patch of clouds ahead of it. The object then appeared to "turn off" or change to a jet black appearance. It could be described as it turned into a shadow, darker than the actual night sky. It was at this time you could really see the oval shape of the object. When the object turned black, it was only visible for about 4 or 5 sec! onds more before it was out of our viewing range. The witness! es inclu ded mechanics, computer analyst, sales men, plumbers, Managers, Nurses, and a Doctor. Most of these people could be described as skeptical, but no one was doubting that we had just seen something very odd. We are located 15 miles SouthEast of the Detro Metro Airport. At one point during the first sighting, i actually pointed out a couple of airplanes in the distant sky. The light was no where near as intense, nor no where near the size. Also, the strobing light on the airplane makes it a sure give away. I pointed out the airplanes just as a frame of reference for all of us witnessing this object. Due to the proximity of the Airport, i have to imagine something was picked up on radar.
