On sunday january 6th at approximately 8:30pm (very cold out) my wife returning from the store comes in excited about a couple of orange glowing balls seemingly hovering a few hundred feet above our house. my grandson and i went out to look and only saw 1 hovering silently over head. it began to move slowly at first to the wsw. i went in to get binoculars (10 seconds) came back out and it was gone. about 45 seconds later 3 more appeared from the ene and came overhead as a group but not in a tight formation. absolutely no sound. my first thought was chinese lanterns but they would have been very very large, small plane or helicopter size, and defying wind patterns. the light source was much much brighter than a candle. with the binoculars it appeared spherical with a red beam coming out of the yellow orange glow that the whole sphere was giving off. any idea what we were watching?
