Location: Eau Claire, WI
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 15 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
2 orange lights (fire) appeared moving west over Eau Claire before hovering and disappearing.

We were sitting out over a campfire at an RV resort, just hanging out. My dad, on my left, saw the object over our RV, it was about north-northwest of us, heading west. It was orange, and at first we believed it was a plane on fire-we've been training to get our private pilots certificates, so we knew there was an airport nearby. It headed west, looking like a ball of fire, though moving slowly, and almost flickering. It appeared to drop slightly once or twice, before reaching a west-northwest point and diminishing in apparent size and distance.

About 5-10 minutes later, another appeared, and this time we recognized they weren't planes, this one maintained a sturdier altitude, but flickered a bit more. It got a bit past the west-northwest point the first one reached before hovering at a brighter intensity than the other for a much longer time (the other one did not hover at all, just reached point and began diminishing in brightness). It stayed there for a minute or so before it to began to diminish and vanished.
