August 13, 2011: South Bethany, Delaware. approx. 12:14 am we saw two fireballs in the sky, ascending from south east, the second one following the same course as the first. We thought they were going to collide but the first "pushed" the second westward and the first veered east and dissappeared over the Atlantic Ocean. The second headed north and burnt out.
