My Wife and I noticed 9 Redish Orange Lights floating west to east

My Wife and I noticed 9 Redish Orange Lights floating west to east over the state street area in Rockford about 21:25 on 01/11/01. They appeared to circle around each other as they floated along. They also gained height as they floated eastward. We live near state and I90 and the lights disappeared into the clouds just above our house. They floated like ballons, but the lights were very bright. If they were ballons, they must have been tied together because of the way they circled each other. The sky filled with clouds. The cloud cover was low as well. The Rockford news media have video that represent what we saw very well.
