Date of Sighting: December 24, 2010
Time of Sighting: 8:40 PM PST
Location of Sighting: Bradenton, Florida (See Map)

Description: Like I stated in the call, the objects looked like fireballs flying through the sky. There There was a huge line of them. They looked red/orange with white in the middle, and they made no sound and floated up through the sky going away from each other until they finally disappeared at one point. Then some that seemed to have stayed back did the exact same motion and then disappeared. These same objects were seen the same place by my family on Thanksgiving, only then it was just one object. This time there was close to a dozen. This was simply amazing, and I believe they were headed northwest, but I can't be sure. Use the video to judge if possible.

Note: It is difficult to determine the direction of movement from the video. The witness thought that the fireballs were traveling to the northwest. A check of winds aloft showed that the winds aloft were from the east to southeast through the lower 5,000 feet of the atmosphere. A movement to the northwest with winds from southeast would mean that the objects were drifting with the wind. However, this cannot be accurately determined as there is some uncertainly in determination of the direction of movement. The video has been brightened to better illustrate the objects. The source of the ring of white light that ensued is not known. The moon had not yet risen at the time of the video.
