Reddish orange glowing orbs flying in formation in Orlando at about 9:30 PM April 29, 2012

At about 9:30 pm, My family and I were on our way home after dinner at Tibby's in Winter Park.  We had gone to Winter Park to shop at the Whole Foods supermarket there. Right after passing the intersection of Lake Underhill and Econlockhatchee Road, travelling South on Econlockhatchee Rd., heading to home in Orlando, Florida , we saw a car in front of us pulled ooff the road on the right with its lights still on, door open and 2 young men outside the car. I was looking to see what they had pulled off for, and as we passed I saw that one person had either a camera or phone pointed up at about a 45-50 degree angle in front of him. It was odd because it was dark and all that was in front of him at that angle would be either a fence, a house's rooftop or the sky. So I was "rubbernecking", then some lights caught my attention in the dark sky, in the direction where he was pointing his camera/phone at (West of us). I saw a line of a number of glowing reddish orange glowing orbs, lighter and bright at the center, lined up in an arc formation moving from left to right and up, in the sky. I shouted out to my family to look, look, look, a line of strange reddish lights. I realized why the people had pulled off and what they must have been taking pictures of. My husband who was driving, also saw the lights I was shouting about and pulled off the road too. We were now ahead of the other car, with their headlights facing us. My husband and I got out of the car and watched, calling our daughter to come look. She did, but seemed scared and hesitant. None of us recognized what they could be, orb shaped, with that reddish orange glow, brighter and lighter in the center. It was obvious to us that they were not planes from how they looked, moved, lined up and disappeared. There was also a plane flying in the opposite direction toward them off to the right, likely intending to land at the airport in that general area.. They were moving up and rig! ht and were disappearing one by one as they moved to the far r! ight. Th e largest was about the size of a pea the distance. My daughter couldnt get her iphone camera to work properly as she frantically tried to get a shot, she says it froze but managed to get a picture, though thee photo looks very red in color.  The lowest one was largest and as they moved up to the right they were either smaller or farther, then disappeared one at a time. There were about 3 lower down and 2 up to the right. I don ' t know if there were more or not before we saw them since they were fisappearing. The people in the orher car had left. I only indicated 3 who saw this, counting only my family though I know at least 2 other strangers saw it as well. I wondered if the people in the plane did also. Eventually all disappeared. We went home, somewhat in shock and a little scared. I figure I would be the last person at this site reporting this but it just happened and we all saw it, though I am still having trouble processing what we saw, and wondering what people will think when or if I tell them.
