Glowing orange barrel-shaped objects in sky over town of Middleton, WI

My husband and 3 children, as well as a neighbor, and two of her children, were having a fire in our backyard firepit. There are no streetlights, so our sky is dark, and you can see the stars very clearly. Between 8:00 and 8:30ish, we noticed a group of barrel shaped glowing orange lights coming from the near northern side of our neighborhood. There was no sound, that we could detect,coming from the objects.They popped up out of nowhere, one by one, and floated at a moderate speed across the sky in a southerly direction, not very high, and eventually went into the clouds and disappeared (we could no longer see the glowing of the objects in the clouds)about a quarter of a mile for our home, as we could judge. We had no sense of fear, just pure surprise and curiosity. I took photos as soon as I could run into the house and find my camera. My camera revealed some barrel shaped and some flatter oval objects, glowing as if on fire, or very hot.
