Moving red spheres in sky

My boyfriend and I were walking around the neighborhood looking for fireworks when we spotted red balls of lights in the sky. We knew they weren't fireworks because the lights didn't fade out. They seemed to be moving in batches. At first we saw about 3 or 4 moving separately across the sky, much faster and swifter than an airplane moves. Then one by one they would disappear into the sky. I'm not sure of the exact direction they were going, but I can verify that these lights were moving horizontally across the sky, like the same way a plane would...only much faster. We then saw a few other groups. All of the moving lights were spread pretty far apart, but appeared to be going in the same direction. I attempted to record one with my phone, but the quality isn't nearly as good as I would've liked it to be.
