Location: Columbus, OH
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 3 minutes
5 balls of fire in the sky flying in formation

I saw 5 balls of fire traveling due east from downtown. The balls of fire remained in 1 formation for the 3 minute sighting.

My initial thought was that they were Chinese lanterns, but they seemed to make the same movements as if they were attached by a string.

They faded away into the clouds.
