Reddish- Orange floating orbs in London Ontario

While watching a movie, my mom noticed these strange lights floating in the air outside our home. It followed a sound similar to a firework going off. We stepped outside assuming they were indeed fireworks but what we saw was something quite strange. Three globe like lights moved at a moderate pace over our back yard. They were not very high in the air almost as if they were balloons that someone had just released. However, there appeared to be a flame inside of the orb and it was surrounded by a reddish - orange globe. We watched it as it travelled past our home at which point we lost sight of the 3 objects. Shortly there after, another object appeared, flying somewhat faster and higher but in the same direction. This time we followed it to our front yard where we continued to watch it ascend into the sky when it quickly disappeared. While writing this note, my husband than alerted me to another light floating in the air but at a much greater distance! . The object appeared to hover over the horizon, flickering like a ball of fire but not moving. After several minutes, it finally moved to the south slowly out of our sight line. My husband and I are both educated with graduate degrees in the healthcare industry, my parents are retired church going individuals and my two young children in early grade school are now very concerned about what they saw. We are not looking to draw attention to ourselves. What we saw was not scary but rather inexplicable. We have never seen anything like this we are just very curious to know what those lights might have been.
