Eight golden/orange objects hovering above Rockford.

The three of us witnessed eight golden/orange "fireballs" that seemed to be hovering over the city of Rockford. Looked like stars but brighter. They seemed to be in some sort of formation, with one a bit of a distance to the left of the others. All eight gradually faded out. All could be clearly seen from toll plaza at intersection of Route 20 and Interstate 90. At least one other car witnessed event.
