Silent orangish-red silent objects in the night sky

Sunday evening at 10:30 pm July 22, my husband and I were sitting on our front porch facing southeast. Suddenly, looking south to the house across the street I saw a bright orange light. It moved off to the east, seemed to go higher and then disappeared. As it went to the east towards Baltimore there was suddenly another one approaching us from the south. It also went east and went higher and then disappeared from sight. I spoke to my husband right away and we both went out to the front yard and stood there entranced. We could not understand what these were as they were very silent. There was no aircraft noise at all. The amazing thing was the objects kept coming from the south going east for about 10 minutes in time. I did not count but I would estimate that there were at least 10 perhaps 12 in all. Midway through the sighting there was a formation of 3 bright orange lights together that seemed to make a triangle shape. After this there were single objects ! again. They moved very deliberately, not very fast, but steadily. As they turned east they seemed to rise and they seemed to be going faster and then they disappeared from sight.

At one point I mentioned my sonís telescope to my husband. There was not tine to get it and set it up so my husband went inside for our binoculars. At that point there was one more orange light coming over the trees. As it turned east I trained the binoculars on it. I could make out what appeared to be a large disc shaped object that had row upon row of lights on it. It was in a vertical position like a satellite dish. I felt the lights were all separate as there seemed to be areas of black between the lights. It was rather hard to be sure of this but it is the impression I got when using the binoculars. This turned out to be the last object we saw.
