a dozen or so noisless orb like flaming balls of light that moved west across the sky and disapeared.

I showed up at a friends house at around 10:12 pm. When i went up to his door i glanced around and happened to see a bunch of strange lights through the trees that divided his property from the neighbors property. My friend was on the phone when he answered the door, and when i saw the lights i became curious and decided to walk back towards the edge of the property where i could better see them. As i stood watching them i noticed that the lights were moving. There was a group of about 8 to 10 lights congregated and 2 lights that seemed to be following the larger group from a distance. The larger group of lights seemed to be spaced apart from one another in a way that formed a kind of half moon shape. Each light that was in the half moon shape seemed to be at almost a perfect distance from each other. There were also a few lights around the half moon shape that were not part of this alignment. As i realized that what i was seeing was something i couldn't exp! lain i decided to call my friend over and point out what i was seeing. Once my friend saw the lights we continued to watch and follow them on foot as they moved west. They didn't make any abrupt movements, however some of them moved up and down in the sky and some seemed to hover in one spot while others moved more quickly. After a short period of time some of the lights began to dim. It was like one of those touch lamps with different settings of brightness on it. Some of the lights seemed to dim quicker than others, but before disappearing completely they looked white like a star. There also seemed to be a red blinking light that became more visible as the light dimmed. The lights at their brightest looked similar to an orb or candle flame if you could control the shape of flame to a circular shape. My friend was able to capture a short video of the two lights that seemed to be following the larger congregation of lights. Whatever these objects were they did not give off ! any sound. Also, at one point one of the lights moved towards one of t he other lights. When the light got close to the other light it dimmed out and disappeared.
