Shape: Fireball
Duration: 2-3 minutes
Driving home just after sundown I drove around a corner to see a number of lights (9-12), red-orange in color, ascending to the sky. After about 15 seconds I realized I was almost stopped in the road and drove to a parking lot maybe a quarter mile up the road, exited my vehicle and took a picture and short video. Only being a few blocks from home in jumped back in my truck and raced home to show my wife. When we went outside, the ascending lights were no longer there, only three white lights in the shape of a triangle traveling away from us. I never heard a sound, and it seemed the ascending objects were moving very slow like a ballon, but in the 90 seconds it took my to drive home and grab my wife, the objects were no longer many, but one.
