4 groups of 2 orange/red boxes of what appeared to be firelike light seen in central Florida.

It was last Saturday, 10/19/2013 at approximately 8:45 PM, I was leaving my mom's home in north east Orlando area (College Park). I was facing her reminding her to lock up when I turned to walk down the driveway to my car, I saw 2 boxes of orange/reddish light looking like fire coming toward me. They were coming from the north east sky between the two homes across the street.

They appeared to be almost floating toward me with no sound, and no movement other than straight forward movement when the first object began heading south west and the second object appeared to reach the same point and follow it.

I was telling my mom what I saw, and when I turned to point out where I saw them first, there appeared another orange box coming from the same area with another seen following it.

They both changed direction at the same place the first two did and moved south west. I watched them until they got smaller and smaller and when I turned back to where they had come from, there was another headed toward me, with one behind it. Again they moved to approximately the same area and turned toward the south west.

I got into my car and moved to the end of the road and watched 2 more boxes of fire looking light moving across the sky towards the south west following the others.

I saw, in approximately 10-15 minutes of time, 4 groups of orange/red boxes in sets of 2... all originating from the same area and moving off to the south west toward the city of Orlando. To my naked eye, they appeared to be boxes of fire, they did not glow, but seemed to radiate color, almost iridescent looking.

My first thought when I saw them was perhaps hot air balloons, but it was night, I saw nothing above the boxes, and they made no sound. I then thought perhaps paper lanterns, but they each followed the first one, and appeared to move in the same pattern. They also were in groups of two.

As I saw the first one come toward me, I could see another smaller following it, and when the first one headed in the south west direction, the following one was still coming forward and getting bigger until it headed south west and followed the first. Then about 2-3 minutes later another group of 2 was seen.

Prior to this sighting at approx 7:30 PM, I had heard several deep booms like fireworks being set off somewhere. I went out at that time and saw nothing, it was partially cloudy that night and I figured the cloud cover had accentuated the fireworks from the Disney area and that was what I heard.

I am not sure that this had anything to do with this sighting or not, but thought it should be mentioned.
