Unknown circular object in the sky near a fireworks show in lakeland.

On new years day, my sister, parents, and I were watching the fireworks display when I noticed five strange lights in the sky. after about thirty seconds I told my sister to look up. she too saw it and comented that it could be some sort of UFO. The craft was circular in design with five round lights that seemed to fade from orange to red. the lights did not seem to rotate around the craft, instead they seemed to just stay perfectly still, as if suspended in mid-air.It is my belief that this "craft" was for some reason attracted to the fireworks display. After about two minutes the object moved away, at first traveling quite slow,but suddenly began to travel at a speed that I could not track it by sight.
