Four red crosses/X's flying east to west @ unknown altitude and speed.

On 02/02/2014 @ 20:00 hrs I was on our back deck of our house looking NE. I saw a red looking cross / X in the sky coming over the tree line @ 65 to 70 degrees from me. It was either gaining in altitude or entering clouds. The direction it was heading was due west. A second red cross/X appeared seconds later a few degrees south of the first one. This one passed the first one on the north side. Both of these red crosses/X’s appeared to be climbing in altitude or entering the upper clouds. Through the tree line I could see two more red crosses/X’s appearing. All four were heading due west. I ran inside our house grabbed my Swarovski’s and asked my wife to come and look at these red crosses/X’s; which she did. It took me maybe 30 seconds to run inside and back out, by then only one red cross/X was visible with our eyes. As I was looking through the binoculars at the fourth red cross/X it did not look red or like a cross/X, it had a yellowish looking l! ight/beam in the center and a hazy/aura on the outside of the light. As this passed over head of me I continued following it using the binoculars. The light was disappearing and then I could see it actually take shape which looked like a dark dome shaped canopy as I continued looking at it. It was heading west, and looked like a large black umbrella moving across the sky. These objects did not make any aircraft noise or any noise at all. About 20 minutes after the four objects disappeared I heard aircraft flying overhead heading west.

This whole process was 5 minutes in duration. These four red lights were not blinking and were ten times larger than any aircraft lighting. Viewed through binoculars the yellowish looking light was 5 times larger than any helicopter’s spot light. Due to not knowing what altitude these units were at I am not sure how large they were.
