6 Orange glowing fireball objects flying soundlessly west to east along south shore of Long Island

At almost 5 or 10 minute intervals, first one fire ball moving from west to east along the south shore of Long Island. Burnt orange in color, cruising at a low altitude with absolutely no noise. Then the second, then 2 together, then the 5th and then the 6th at about 10:30 p.m.

Shortly after each passed us, the light flickered as if it was going through a cloud, and then went out completely - but there are no clouds in the sky this evening, and the stars are clearly visible. Each of the 6 did this.

We looked at the last one through binoculars, and the orange lights seemed to be in a honeycomb hexagonal pattern.

One military jet flew from east to west and veered south between the 4th and 5th sighting.

My friend took a video with her phone.
