Bright orange lights over Lafayette Indiana

I stepped outside my apartment complex cause I heard a firetruck but as soon as I walked out the door I seen three bright orange lights traveling from east to west. They where moving fairly slow and at a low altitude. After they passed the apartment the light faded out quickly.

Then two more appeared, I yelled to my friend there are ufo's in the sky and a neighbor a few doors down popped around the corner and said there is more in the front. We went out front (east part of the building) and there was three more totaling eight that I had seem. They too flew west over the building and disappeared shortly after. The light just vanished and you couldn't tell anything ever happened. The neighbors boyfriend said he saw ten on his way home.

It is a very clear night and there isn't a cloud in the sky. It's odd how they vanished the way they did with the clear conditions. This isn't the first sighting I've seem in Indiana but it is the first I've seen in Lafayette. I've seen them in Kokomo, In also.
