Several orange orbs following eachother ACROSS the night sky, I witnessed about 6 of them, after calling my wife, she was able to see 3

Well, I can only say this happened approximately 6 months ago, I knew I should’ve NOT brushed it off, like my wife, I am a believer and that night frustrated me because I could NOT identify the crafts, orbs or whatever it may have been, I searched the news and internet to see if people seen what my wife and I seen, and to my amazement, I didn’t see or hear of anything, perhaps I just didn’t do enough research, so I kind of resided to the fact that there was probably an explanation for it, but deep inside I wanted some confirmation of what I saw, I was outside on my back lanai smoking a cigar, when I look up on the southeast corner, headed northwest was what I believe I counted about 6 orange orbs(?) that flew in somewhat formation one after the other, I was pretty excited yet confused at what I was watching, I broke away for a second to open the back door and call for my wife to hurry up and see this, I may even have missed one or two within a 5 second peri! od to get her, by the time she came out, she was able to see the last 3 following in a straight line, but we would only see one at a time going in the same direction, I’d see one, it looked like it was traveling pretty quick, then out of sight, followed by another, then out of sight and so on and so forth this continued, the orange orbs looked sort of like small suns or something, there wasn’t a whole lot of flickering, but there were quite a few and I became fixated to watch one go by, and would hope for another and there it was, another one would fly in the nw direction of my town in New Port Richey, FL, just north of Tampa. I was really excited, but my wife didn’t seem to fazed over it, and sort of took the wind out of my sails because she didn’t think it was anything from another world, and it may not of been, I’d like to know if this explanation is consistent with things like a weather balloon, do they fly that fast and at night? Do they routinely fly one after ano! ther, this was not going up, it was flying across the night sk! y, and I ’m sorry I never documented exactly when it did happen, I just know it was about 5 or 6 months ago…..would love some opinions.
