Six orange lights falling in a z pattern

We saw six lights appear about two miles west of our house. They were too bright and lasted too long to be fireworks. My boyfriend had time to see them and run inside to grab his phone and see the rest of the descent. Some went out and relit.

They fell in a zig zag pattern one behind the other equidistant from each other rather slow going north then west like a z.

They were bright orange.

Too low and slow to be jets or planes.

Completely baffled a UFO is the only explanation.

They vanished still descending into the tree line.
