|Orange balls in pattern over gulf/mobile bay
Fishing at Fort Gaines, 3 bright orange circles in a row sighted stationary to southwest over the gulf about 70 degrees above the horizon. All three vanished at once after about 2 min of observing them.
Went back to fishing and kept an eye out, approx 15 min later reappeared, 4 this time , one split off after a minute then all vanished.
Orange in color, much larger diameter than stars.
Definitely not mars as it was solo and to our east.
Orion's belt visible at same time lower on horizon, so not that either. Clear night, 70 degrees, excellent visibility, no cloud cover.
