3 Fireballs

3 Fireballs

Date: June 15, 1955

Location: Daytona Beach, FL

3 fireballs moved slowly along the beach, then accelerated and flew straight up into the night sky and disappeared.

I was walking on the beach in a remote section near the Orange River inlet.

It was after dark and the tide was low.

I looked out to sea where the breakers were visible in the Moon.

It was then that I saw the fireballs, lined up in a row parallel to the breakers.

They were the size of a house, each moving very slow along the beach.

As the first fireball reached a point, it accelerated rapidly, left to right, and moved 90 degrees up, into the night sky.

As each of the other 2 fireballs reached this approximate location, they, too, accelerated rapidly and moved 90° up into the night sky and disappeared, growing smaller and smaller until I couldn't see them.

Hard to judge speed, but I would guess hundreds of miles per hour once they started to move up into the night sky.

I was frightened and turned to head back to my house and literally bumped into a strange man standing on the beach.

He didn't look at me, just stared at the fireballs.

Said in a detached way:

ball lightning, it was ball lightning.

I ran home and have never forgotten that vision.
