Bright orange lights dropping , what looked like flares?

My wife and I were coming back from Pierre and we got to a area by Channy rush? HWY 34. We noticed what looked like a tower light in the sky to the south of us. It was bright orange and it dropping what looked like flares? There was a second smaller orange light kinda below it moving up and down. I stopped and called my sister to have her go outside to see if she could see them from Stephan, where we live. She said she didn’t see anything. We didn’t see them anymore and started back home again. Then we were about two miles from home and again we seen one bright orange light then it spilt into two with one below the other, moving up and down.

We got home and I walked down our road alittle to see past the campus High School building and south in the sky was five bright orangr lights. Four were in a straight line and one just below the left of the formation. I ran back to the house and got my kids in the van and we were going to go drive to get a better look at them. We made it just off our gravel road and we seen the one orange light again drooping what looked like flares. My daughter was filming it on out cell phone. We waited for about 30min and nothing.

We were so excited leaving our house my sister ran over our dog, bummer. There are several residents in the area that seen the same lights. I even e-mailed it to Keloland our news station, no responds.

Then on the 24th in Chamberlain, SD the Keloland weather camera caught this burning light crossing the sky to the east, and a School bus had to stop and check it out. They said on the news that it was burning space debris.I know what I saw was not burning space debris or anything like it . What I saw was stationary and moving up and down. Then maybe later in this week out in Crow Creek district they found some crop circle that some hunters found. I seen a picture that a co-worker took.. I don’t know if it was related to what I saw or what but anyway, "weird stuff."
