Observer
Name John H
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I was driving north on the A1065, and could triangulate the fireballs to my right as I was moving along. They were a long way away, and therefore very large - far too big to be fireworks. Two or three appeared, one after the other. They didn't have all the characteristics of meteors, but I'm at a loss to explain them.
