Shape: Fireball | Duration: 4-5 minutes
Source:

Orange circular fireballs moving across the sky. Looked like orange candle flames, surrounded by a light halo, and made no sound.Me, my brother, my sister, & her husband were outside swimming at around 12:20AM in the morning. We watched what looked like 5 fireballs fly from one side of the sky to the other. "Float" is a more apt term.The objects appeared to have a center made of fire, which looked like a candle flame, surrounded by an orange halo. (Like a candle flame in a dark room would make.) The fire in the center was orange as well.These objects made no sound what-so-ever. They all moved with the exact same speed, in the exact same direction, along the exact same trajectory.Each vanished over the horizon behind our house.None of us have ever seen anything remotely like this before. They looked like fireballs, but moved like aircraft, made no noise, and seemed to 'float', rather than 'fly'.
