Orange UFOs

I live in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia. On the night of January 31 2001 at approximately 11.45pm (GMT +8.00) I saw many bright orange dots moving at slow speed coming from the north travelling southwards. It was a clear night and many people who were outdoors praying on this 8th day of the Chinese New Year were puzzled as to what these objects were. With my "not so powerful" binoculars my family members and I could make out that it was disk shaped, had a very bright orange flame burning at the center and it rocked slowly at approximately 45 degrees angle. In all there were more than 15 of these objects and the display lasted more than one hour. Some were just little dots but a few flew quite low but there was no noise to indicate that it was an aircraft. A similar sighting was on the 24th of January 2001 at approximately 10pm.
