Series of about 8 bright orange-red globes ascending from dark hillside in about a 30- second succession with same flight pattern.

I witnessed a series of about 8 bright, orange-red globes or balls emerge from a dark hillside in about a 30 second-60 second succession. It was around 20:00, dark clear sky with a few low cloud formations.

Coming off of the dark hillside, the globes all had the same pattern of ascending to approximately the same elevation, then moving in a southerly direction until they were no longer visible.

They moved smoothly like an airplane. The last ball gained a higher elevation than the others before it moved south. The objects appeared to be the same size.

I have several pictures taken on my digital camera. I was talking to a friend on the phone when I first noticed the first bright light on the dark hillside. I watched at least 4 or more balls, describing them to my friend trying to figure out what these lights could be. My friend suggested I try taking pictures. I am not sure if there were more balls before the first one I saw.
