Orange objects in sky

When I was pulling into my driveway I noted a bright orange/red shape of light in the SE direction of the sky moving in a NW direction which was moving slower than an aircraft on descent. I got out of the vehicle and immediately got my family members out to watch this phenomenon with me. When we got outside again, we looked over to the South and noted another one of these light orbs in the sky along with the previous. They were now moving in a direction towards the west. My guess of altitude would be below 1,000 feet. The light was constant, non fluctuating, and almost looked like a source of light on the bottom of the object radiating upwards to the top. There was no noise associated with it, and the movement was steady. No trails were noted. The first object moved to the west of the sky, and turned direction upwards, and slowly faded away, the second object then followed to the same area and disappeared slowly. I then looked back at the origin poi! nt and noted a third light of the same exact description follow the same path and again disappear.

We live in the approach path of the International airport, so I have been seeing and dealing with planes in the sky for all of my life, however this was not a plane and there were no identifier strobes seen. This was not a flare either, as it had a more orange hue than a flare. There were no sounds of fireworks in the area as well. When I attempted to look through the binoculars, the objects were fuzzy and could not be focused on.

I stayed outside for a duration of ten more minutes after this event, and nothing else was seen.

The path of these objects must have been a mile to three miles in length.
