Duration: 67 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
I was in my boyfriend's car with two of our friends. My boyfriend yells, “Get out of the car! Look!. We got out and saw three “fireballs” (orange - seemed to be radiating slightly - not just a light dot) moving from north to south at medium speed. Not planes, not meteors. One disappeared, then the next, then the next.

Each one slowly dimmed until they were no longer visible. There was one plane in the vicinity which seemed to be moving in the same direction. We got at least two videos, but they don't do them justice. They look like plain, small dots in the videos. In real life, they weren't so abruptly shaped. You might say there was an aura or haze.. There was no trail.

I've seen youtube videos showing three dots in this very same formation (closest is lowest, second is highest, third is in between). Running car may have started revving a little harder/rougher.
