Three orange lights flying in a diagonal line

Witnessed three bright orange lights flying NE. My girlfriend pointed them out from our back porch saying ("What the heck is that?). The lights kept a consistent equal distance from each other in a diaganol straight line from the top right to bottom left, and flying to our left (NE). There was a fourth single light that they appeared to be following. That fourth light looked further away, higher in the sky, and dim in comparison to the other three. There was no sound and it was too dark to see if the three lights were somehow connected. The speed seemed to be about the same as an airplane would fly, but the height looked lower than a plane flying by.

Later that evening our neighbor said he saw them too and thought they could be Chinese lanterns. My girlfriend and I believed they were something different, as they moved right to left in a consistent line with some speed.

Before they were out of sight, they dimmed away, and two of them flickered before disappearing. I've never seen anything like this and do not know what is was. There was no red, green, or white lights like an airplane. Only orange round balls of light - strange...
