4 Glowing sphere's of light in the sky

While traveling to deliver a limousine to Springfield MO, I was a passenger in the rear of the limousine having recently turned over the wheel to my partner ((name deleted)), observed over my left shoulder, a glowing sphere of light in the sky appear out of nowhere. It had my attention from the moment it appeared. Then another appeared in a slightly higher altitude, then another, then another only the fourth one was higher in altitude but not in the same line as the other three. This one appeared to be behind the third one but higher. I observed this as we were traveling along having not mentioned anything yet as I was still anylizing what I was witnessing.

Then as I was about to say somethign they all imploded and disappeared.

I never said anything at that point, then about 2 minutes later they began to by one in the same formation. I then decided to say somethign to my partner, I said hey ((name deleted))...Look over your left shoulder..he did and immediatly ran off the road. he said...WTF is that?.....I said I don't know that I had been watching it for several minutes. we pulled over to try to photograph it. I attempted to take a picture with a disposable camera but it was useless. these glowing sphere's were not emitting light around them but were yet glowing...they were definatly higher than anything that could have been a structure. They were glowing amber/yellow and when they disapeared they were just could have seen the sphere's still in the sky if the lights had just been turned off, but they were not there when they appeared to implode into themselves and disappear. Then a trucker stopped thinking we might need assitance, he asked us what we were doing?... we told him we were watching those lights but when we turned to point them out they were gone again. The trucker said that there was a military base in that general direction and with that I decided we needed to move on before we trolled up a cop. we then left and they never reappeared to us again. I did some research to try to identify what I observed and I feel that the best description of what I witnessed was "The Phoenix Lights"
