Lake Wylie, SC

Sighted on Tuesday 05. January 2016
Reported on
Shape: Fireball | Duration: 8 minutes
Source:

15-20 bright, red-orange lights moving from horizon to horizon over an 8 minute period.Tonight (05 January 2016), I observed 15 to 20 bright red-orange objects, transiting the night sky over Lake Wylie, SC. They moved from horizon to horizon in a NNE to SSW direction, over a 5 to 8 minute period. They appeared as bright red-orange dots, with irregular spacing along the line of flight, but all seemed be headed in the same direction, and at similar speeds. No sound was detectable.I have never seen anything like this, but the closest thing would be red distress flares--but they don't transit horizon to horizon.
