To the west, over the Pacific, off the North Shore of O'ahu, I have skylights in my bedroom, and saw six or seven brilliant shapes of fire heading slowly south in a rough formation.
I ran downstairs and outside for a better look. They made no sound. One object actually went "up" a little and crossed the path of another. They did seem to fade away at a fairly high altitude before they disappeared, but they were not flares or fireworks. There was no smoke coming from them. They appeared to be about the distance a helicopter would fly, but it was difficult to determine. They could have been much higher.
We do have a major military installations of all branches on the island, and I can only think it was some activity from them, but WHAT!!! They were very bright, orange flame-like and very large. They do not seem like something meant to "light a battlefield".
