Formation of floating lights in Thanksgiving night sky

This report is in response to your segment on Coast to Coast AM on Thanksgiving night concerning the red/orange lights in the sky.

On Thanksgiving night November 24, 2011 at around 2030-2045 I stepped outside my house to go to work as a night security guard. In the Eastern sky over Lathrop CA and headed toward Manteca CA the next city over, there were about 8-10 red lights in formation floating in the sky. It seemed that the lights were moving slowly West to East.

At first I tried to rationalize the lights as Asian Sky Lanterns but all of the lights moved in formation like a flock of birds and always maintained the same speed and interval.

My neighbor also saw the lights, though I cannot say that he was sober that night. Hopefully this report is part of a bigger puzzle from that night.
