6 bright orange lights moving silently in the sky over Lanarkshire, Scotland

On Christmas Eve about 8pm I was driving with my 21 year old daughter. I saw 2 bright orange lights in the sky quite high up but moving slowly in a south east direction. They were quite far apart but travelling at the same speed in the same direction keeping the same distance.

I stopped the car and both of us leaned out the windows to listen for the engines, but only silence. Then 3 more in a triangular formation followed at the same speed in the same direction. The were spaced out but a definate triangle. The orange circular lights all looked the same. We were freaked out - then a larger orange light appeared following the other 5. They seemed to be going higher as they moved away. At first we thought it was aircraft, but was cutting through the flight path to Glasgow airport in the opposite direction. They all moved at a steady speed always keeping formation. The silence was creepy.
