Dozens of bright orange circular lights

Just after 8:00pm Pacific time, I was walking to my car, when I noticed a bright stationary orange ball of light. It stayed in one spot for approximately 30 seconds.

I ran inside to get my wife and kids. They came out and were able to see the light briefly before it seemed to just disappear out of existence. I just thought it was a little weird but nothing more. I got into my car, went to grab some groceries about a mile from the house.

About 10 minutes after the original sighting, I was able to see an estimated 20-30 bright orange lights in the exact same area! Almost in the shape of a flower petal, stretching maybe across 2 miles of sky. I flew into the driveway honking. My family ran out. Unfortunately, my wife and kids only saw the last 2 bright orange balls “blink”out of existence for about 10 seconds and then they were gone.

Within a minute there were 2 airplanes circling the area where we had seen the odd lights. We hopped in the car to get out of the suburb lights and chase what we saw. They did not appear in any capacity again. For the record I’m a huge skeptic when it comes to any type of UFO talk. That being said I have no way to explain what we saw in the sky tonight.
