Mostly orange-red circular objects appeared in southern sky over ocean near Oak Island, NC

Seven red-orange circles appeared in the sky about 15-20 degrees above the horizon in southern direction over the ocean off of Oak Island, NC. These objects appeared first as 4 circles at 8:34 PM then others (or some of the same) again at 8:47 PM. The objects appeared rapidly out of nowhere and then disappeared within 5 seconds. The circles all appeared each as a large filled in circle of red-orange color. They all seemed to appear and disappear in the same general area (but not exactly the same)of the sky. At one point two were side by side before disappearing. They all seemed to disappear by collapsing into themselves. The two that were side-by-side appeared to have a halo around them. All circles were filled in with the same color and appeared to be large.
