6 glowing objects fly near roof. (reoccuring)

On two separate occasions I witnessed glowing objects in flight that ranged in size from firefly size to navel orange size. The first sighting happened Tuesday August 7, 2012 at approximately 11:30 pm. I was sitting on the deck with my friend and about 60 yards away in the distance we saw glowing objects flying right above a 2 story house in front of the chimney. From what I could tell, they were round, or spherical objects that could change their size. At the very least they would appear to be the size of a firefly but much brighter, and at times the objects would appear to grow to the size of a navel orange, but then shrink and disappear. I watched these objects fly around for about 15 minutes. I walked away for 10 minutes then returned and the objects were still there. On Friday August 10, 2012 at approximately 3 AM I witnessed the objects again, they were flying around in the same place as before. This time I had binoculars and with getting a closer look! I was able to detect that they were not fireflies. They seemed to maneuver like moths, in a rather erratic fashion. But they did not have wings. One of the objects which was about the size of a ping pong ball flew in a corkscrew maneuver within what seemed like an area of 2 feet or so.

All of the objects flew within an area of about 3 feet, I did not witness the objects flying away from the area in front of the chimney. I wouldn't be surprised if the objects were to appear again.
