Multiple orange blobs floating with a white plane following.

As I walked along the street I noticed people staring and pointing at the sky. I turned around and saw numerous orange/red lights moving in the same direction but in non-uniform formation. They were high in the sky and were followed by a white plane which appeared to be escorting them, it was without doubt moving 'with' them. Each orange blob of light had no flashing lights on it, they didn't seem like helicopters or planes. The sky was quite dark and I could not see if the objects were bigger with red lights mounted on them or if they were just floating lights. They moved slowly and not in a way that seemed incongrous to modern technology. I thought they may be hot-air balloons but they seemd too bright and too high.

People in the street were watching the lights and laughing about 'aliens'. The lights then became obscured from view by the tall buildings. I hurried home to watch the lights from my balcony on the 4th storey but by the time I got home (5mins) they had gone. A helicopter was circling the area and did so for 15 mins. Probably a mundane explanation for this but it seemed very strange.

I am a not a believer in UFOs at all, I am of sound mind, 30 years old and someone I mentioned this to told me to report it to you.

Hope this has been helpful.
