3 disk shaped rotating objects emitting bright orange lights over Atlantic Ocean.

While standing on my first floor balcony I noticed a bright orange light over the water several hundred yards away. An exact distance would be impossible to tell from the human eye but it could not have possibly been more than 1-2 miles from shore. I pointed it out to my friends asking if it was a planet and as soon as we all caught sight of it it disappeared. One of my friend claimed it was probably an airplane passing behind the clouds. It quickly reappeared what looked like some hundred yards away and then disappeared once again. About 2 minutes later we noticed a large orange glowing streak that looked like a falling star that was frozen in time, motionless. Then this obeject slowly made a revolution clearly revealing a disk shape. As this object slowly rotated a new light would appear which conclusively showed us the disk like shape. Upon gazing at this slowly rotating object, my friend pointed out another craft displaying the same exact behavior. An orange central light, with one orange light becoming visible with each rotation and orange lights displayed on the sides. We then noticed the third identical object displaying the same behavior. The three crafts seemed to reveal themselves in the order of left to right, slowly rotating and hovering above the Atlantic Ocean. These crafts made no identifiable sound though it was very windy. Suddenly, all of the orange lights emitted from the three crafts went out. They disappeared. About 3 minutes later we saw these disk shaped figures flying to our northwest, diagonally out of sight. These crafts no longer emitted the glowing orange lights but now displayed what appeared to be multiple strobe lights around the edges. Without these strobe lights around the perimeters of these crafts they would not have been visible to us. We could only make out what appeared to be three ovular structures surrounded by strobe lights on the edges flying away from us in the northwest direction and out of our sight. The first two were flying in a line in tandem with one another and the third following up in the rear. This formed what appeared to be a triangular formation by which they exited from our view.
