Orange-red lights out over Gulf near Venice, FL

On the evening of Nov. 3, 2011, my husband and I were riding our motorcycle north on Casey Key Road, just north of Venice, FL. I kept looking out over the Gulf and noticing an orange-red spherical light in the sky. I told my husband to stop in a spot where we had a clear view out over the Gulf. We both witnessed 3 orange-red lights in a triangular formation. They would appear for several seconds and then fade out. At one point all three lights were showing at the same time; then one would fade out and then another fade out. They appeared stationary while we were watching. Eventually we saw the same type light farther out near the horizon until all the lights faded away. There was no noise, no strobe blinking like an aircraft. We’ve never seen anything like it. We watched for about 5 minutes.
