Orange lights in the Indiana sky, 4 witnesses.

This is the forth time I've seen these lights around my house. Its been interesting. Well, my friend and I were coming home from kokomo, driving west on 26. I was looking out the window while listening to The Beatles when I saw those familiar orange lights. There were four of them. I told darren to pull off the side of the road so he could see. Well we waited about 5-6 minutes and decided we weren't going to see it [just military jets in the sky, as usual]. We got back in the car and headed home. I called my house and told my sis to go watch at the end of our road with her bf and she said alright. It took us about 4 minutes to get to my road, 700 east, where we met my sis and her bf. We asked them if we saw anything and they replied nope. We told them that we were going to eat and then we'd be right back. So we started down my road.. about 1-2 minutes later [we were driving quite slow, still looking] I saw this big orange light to the right of me. It was MUCH closer than any of the ones I've ever seen. I had Darren stop and we jumped out. This light was just sitting there, military was circling the area. My sister saw it too and drove down to where we were. Just around then we see these little tiny orange lights break apart for the the bigger one. A ton of these lights spilt off.. then they all faded away. I asked if everyone had saw this, and pretty much the same thing coming out of all their mouths was, "Wow." We were all kinda stunned.. it was like watching a movie. We looked for another minute before deciding we better eat so we can come back out. We were home eating and you could just hear all the jets in the area. It was apparent they were either chasing the object or it was one of theirs [though I do not see how it could've been a manned object]. We got back out at 9:30 and it was pretty quiet. As we were driving around the country roads we passed two slowly moving vehicles [possibly other people who saw the same thing?]. Nothing was seen for the rest of ! the night.
