UFO Fireball over Provo, Utah 2012-02-14

Mufon Report:
From my apartment window overlooking southwest Utah County observed two orange/yellow fireballs about five minutes apart slowly ascending in the sky. My girlfriend and I observed the same type of object a few days previously about 40 miles away in West Valley City (flying over Valley Fair Mall).

Both fireballs seemed to originate from close to ground-level starting above the city of Palmyra, Utah (appx. 40.148832,-111.719799). They ascended gradually in the air at roughly a 35 degree angle. I'm guessing the objects were 10-20 feet in diameter.

The first object headed due north and reached an altitude of approximately 10-15,000 feet (slightly higher than half the altitude of commercial jets that frequently fly above the path of the these two objects). After approximately two minutes I lost sight of the first object as it passed behind trees a few yards from my balcony.

The second object seemed to arise from the same area traveling somewhat north, northeast. It flew for about 3/4 of the distance as the first object but abruptly faded and vanished.

I would estimate their speed to be faster than a twin-engine plane or transport military helicopter, but traveled about as fast as the life-flight helicopter which frequently flies in the same area to and from Utah Valley Regional Medical Center.

I was able to record the object with a Sony DCR-TRV11 digital video camera. The objects looked to be active balls of flame changing colors from orange to yellow. There were no blinking lights and no other observable lights coming from the object.

I saw that as well on the 12th. Very strange. Saw them out of my window and went outside to check it out. No sound. They flew slowly across the salt lake valley then slowly disappeared. Almost looked as if they were going vertical for a little bit then slowly began ascending. The first three fireballs were flying together and were followed by three others.

Just saw the same thing last night above Mt. Timp, looking East from Pleasant Grove, Utah about 11pm. I have video of it but wasn't able to zoom in, but looked exactly like what you recorded. August 1, 2012

I saw something similar in Provo while on my way back from MTC to Wyview Park back in November 2009, some time around 9pm. It was flying quite low yet I was certain that it couldn't be a helicopter in any way because it wasn't making any noise or flashing lights. It was spherical, giving out bright white light on its surface. It was flying quite fast as well. I observed it fly for about four seconds until it vanished. I don't know if it went over the mountains or turned off its light but I can definitely say that it was one of the most weird thing I ever saw. I remember being dumbfounded and frozen on spot for couple of minutes. haha

I don't remember the exact date but I'm pretty sure it was in the early months of 2012. I was inside my friend's house in Orem around 9 or 10 pm I think when he started yelling at me to come outside. I rushed outside and saw a giant brilliant bluish fireball type thing rising up from the east mountains. It rose vertically for about five seconds, then suddenly zipped off diagonally to the right and disappeared. The diagonal movement was the strangest part, as no aircraft I have ever seen could have possibly moved like that at the speed it did. My friend said the light gave off a much larger flare when it started taking off before I had made it outside.
