Fireball-like lights on Christmas Eve

Upon reaching a hill in Roger Williams Park in Providence, I noticed 3 orange lights. I was confused as to what it was; but then once I drove down the hill, I saw them traverse across the sky, over my car, and form into a triangle shape to the right of where I was. I then knew that this looked like something surreal.

First it seemed to have a clear solid body, but then it seemed to have no body and just be a formed shape of orange lights. Instead of going my usual way home, I took a right turn to follow the lights over the trees. They almost seemed to go faster, as if they were trying to get away. I pulled down Wentworth Ave in Cranston, where I could see them close again.

I stopped, and they seemed to, as well. Then, more fireball-like orange lights came from the North towards the 3 I had originally seen. It was so crazy and surreal. I tried to capture photos/video on my cellphone, but they only look like orange dots and by no means show the true nature of ! what I had saw in actuality. They then began to move away to the southeast; slow at first, and then quickly vanished once I drove up the road and reached Broad St.

I do not know if this was a UFO; but I sure know that this was surreal, unlike anything I had ever seen-and it did not look like it was if this earth.
