6 orange light spheres moving from the East to due North before vanishing

At 20:42, male head of household (my father) rushed inside from taking the dog out to the bathroom exclaiming that there was something weird going on in the sky. I rushed outside with my two brothers, mother, and father and gaped at the sight of 3-4 bright orange lights moving in a formation from the East straight North. They were bright orange, almost the color of pumpkins, and moving in a straight line, with no sound. The lights did not blink at all and were obviously not any kind of aircraft, satellite, meteor, or naturally occurring in any way.

There were no clouds in the sky and the last light slowly faded out, almost like someone turning out a kerosene lamp. We waited outside, discussing it, when two more lights appeared from the East and headed due North once more. One vanished faster than the other, which continued due North until it, too, disappeared. These two seemed lower in the sky than the others, and the one that vanished last almost seemed li! ke it was constantly adjusting its height, dipping up and down. None of the lights seemed naturally occurring in any way and we have not seen any since. I managed to get pictures of the last two, although with my phone they only showed up as bright specks against the black sky.
