2 orange balls of light like a plane was on fire

Whilst putting out the rubbish in the front garden I spotted 2 orange balls traveling from north to south about 500-1000ft in the sky, traveling 1 ball slightly ahead of the other. I called my partner and step daughter to have a look.

The Orange balls of light travelled over Southcote (Reading Berkshire) towards the M4.

Ther was no sound coming form them and ther were other planes in the sky which wer eon the heathrow flight path.

I walked down road observing them, they drifted over the countryside towards Burhghfield and became smaller and smaller turning into a white light and then disappeared.

Reports in the local paper put them down to a hoax ie chineese lanterns set off,but I know what I saw and these were no lanterns.
