While sitting in my patio, I glanced up and was amazed at an array of glowing orange spheres moving across the sky.

I was sitting in my patio listening to music, and I glanced up and saw a W-shaped array of large, bright, glowing, orange lights in the sky. My first thought was that it looked like the constellation Cassiopia because of its shape. But it only took about 5 seconds after my initial shock to realize I was seeing something extrordinary. As they drifted westward, they moved in a random, criss-cross manner, very unlike balloons. As two would maneuver across each other, they would brighten. The thing that struck me was that they couldn't be balloons if they were moving that quickly back and forth, and also they were staying grouped together tightly as they moved across the sky instead of drifting apart as balloons would. Their movements looked very unnatural. One by one I lost view of them as they crossed the constellation Aquila. If anyone else in the L.A. area saw this, please contact me. I would very much like to hear a description of what someone else saw.
