5 Fireball objects in sky over far western Chicago suburbs.

I was driving south on Rock Creek Road in Plano, Illinois, just outside of town and witnessed 4 fireball looking objects coming from the western sky, the fireball looking objects were in pairs of 2 in the front and 2 following behind. The 2 in the back were almost crossing paths at one point. I proceeded to pull over and get out of my vehicle just outside of town near a corn field to get a better look. I got out of my vehicle and watched 4 of them rise into the sky and changed from a orange color to a silver light as what looked like as they went higher in altitude and disappeared into the sky which was from my vantage point was almost straight up from where i was standing. Then 1 more appeared from the same western direction the rest of them came from. It disappeared in the sky almost at the same location in the sky as the previous 4 had done. These fireball looking objects were bright orange and they DID NOT have oscillating lights like a airplane would have and did not produce any noise. I was the only witness, I called family across town at 20:53CDT and my phone cut out in the middle of the call so i called again at 20:56CDT to see if they could see these objects but by time they answered the phone these objects had already disappeared in to the sky. Unfortunately i did not get any pictures or videos of this event.
