Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
10 to 15 slow traveling fireballs that faded into darkness

My wife and I were driving from west valley eastward and saw a number (10-15) of what appears to be a cluster of burning fireballs in a trailing like pattern in the sky.

What was also strange was the velocity at which they were traveling. They were moving fairly slow, especially when compared to shooting stars.

They travelled for about 2 minutes from the time we discovered them until the faded or burned out into darkness.
