2 Fireballs seen over Fountain Hills, AZ. Poorly photographed with my phone.

The fireballs flew approximately 1500 meters overhead, from east to west, making absolutely no sound. They were a bright red/orange color and they flew in the same path, hovered briefly then continued on until making a sharp ascent disappearing into the night sky.

I see them often, they are not planes (no navigation beacons) they do not follow the standard flight paths, they are not helicopters, nor are the lanterns, flares, or fireworks.

I am not sure what they are and I am both fascinated and maybe little frightened by them. They appear more often now than in past years.
