Four Fireballs in Formation over Orlando

I live 3 miles NW of where the Turnpike and I-4 meet. As I was driving South around 1:30am this morning I noticed an orange/red fireball in the sky towards where the Turnpike and I-4 meet. It was circular, almost oval in shape and was traveling North.

At first I thought it was a plane but it slowed down and looked like it was on fire. I called my roommate who was at home to look outside as I had just left. Then I noticed another one in the distance.

As I drove a few more feet, I saw two more. I wanted to take a picture but was not able to. I turned West, and as I looked behind I could see they were in a perfect square formation, hovering without movement.

When I returned ten minutes later, they were no longer there. Upon my return, I did see a helicopter flying in almost the same path as the fireballs. However, the sheriff helicopters fly around my area at least 4 times a week due to crime rate.
