Location: San Antonio, TX
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Procession of 11 fireballs

What I initially noticed was a large orange light that was kind of glowing rather than blinking like normal aircraft... As I continued to watch the craft fly from right to left (south toward the north) about 50 degrees from the horizon I realized it's too big to be a Chinese lantern (about half the size of a dime held at arms length) and is not any kind of aircraft I am familiar with.. no other lights just one large glowing fireball. It was flying at a normal airplane speed.. maybe a little slower and produced no sound. About a minute later I see a second object flying from the same direction.. It to goes by then a third, a fourth.. I watch ten orange fireballs go by. They were flying at different altitudes and distances, some are larger some smaller and have slightly different 'shape'. The tops produced a slight halo of a lighter shade of orange.

I ran into the house and grabbed my iphone and came back outside in time to film the final one go by. I think it was 11 total but it may have been 12. It was like a ufo parade. Very strange. I'm certain others must have seen it as they flew across the whole of east and north San Antonio. After they left a couple airplanes, possibly military, flew past the general area.
