Red/orange orbs with sonic booms

We witnessed, at first, 3 red/orange fireballs/orbs in a line moving up through the sky to the left. Then we saw 1 single red/orange orb coming from the same direction continue the path of the first 3. About 1 minute after the 4th came into view, a 5th coming directly from our right continued on the same path as the rest of the orbs.

We went outside with the binoculars to get a better look and the objects were silent. In the binoculars the objects looked like a red/orange glowing orb with a black core. When they hit a certain altitude the orbs disappeared.

Another odd thing to point out is during this time, as each orb moved out of eyesight up high in the sky, seconds later we heard what sounded like a cannon being fired off, the loud sound ricocheted, which one does not hear off of something like a firework being set off.

We heard 5 or more of these sonic booms as the orbs were moving out of sight high in the night sky. After all orbs had disappeared, we have not heard another “boom.” We live out on the water, so the orbs were bright. We see a lot of air traffic each day/night, but these orbs were different from anything we have ever seen in ten years.
