4 Bright solid orange moving lights in the Sky

4 Bright Orange Lights in the sky few miles out formation in a group moving and then fading out as if traveling away from me....Going to work and at 2:54am on new years day morning, i had just left the house and saw 4 bright orange lights what looked to be about 40 degrees 5 miles away in the very clear sky.

I am 44yrs old, amateur astronomer for decades-own an 8" and 15" reflector telescope that i ground, polished, figured and built myself i share this info to give me some sort of credibility in my sky observation ability's. the bight orange lights were silent (jet sound/helicopter) lights were hovering toward another till one by one they diminished in size as if they were traveling away from me.

flares/fireworks out of the question. this was truly my first experience with ufos. my first thoughts were flares but ruled that out fairly quickly after the motions were being controlled. well that's all i got. thank you.
