5 golden orbs light up in a straight line over the ocean, then dim and disappear.

My husband and I were on vacation and were on the balcony overlooking the ocean. It was 9:55pm at night and I was looking at the stars. There were two ships out on the horizon that I could see their dimly lit lights.

Suddenly, I saw a bright gold glowing light over the ocean. Since it was over the ocean at night, it was difficult to judge distance, but I know it was closer than the two boats out at sea. At first I thought it was a flare and that a boat was in trouble. Or, possibly a firework - but it never exploded the way fireworks do. Then, another gold light lit up to the right of the first. It was the same size and brightness. Then a third lit up and it was the same brightness and all three were in a perfectly straight line and perfectly evenly spaced. The first dimmed and went out and a fourth lit up to the right of the third. Again, evenly spaced, same brightness, and all in a perfectly straight line. The second light dimmed and went out and a fifth lit up. The third dimmed and went out and then the remaining two dimmed and went out one at a time. All of this happened evenly spaced out in timing.

I don't know if they made any sound since it was over the ocean, and the waves were so loud, that was all I could hear. About a minute or two later, to the left of where we saw the first lights, another light appeared. It seemed slightly less bright than the first group. Then a second lit up. At this point, I can't be clear on what I saw because I was trying to get my camera to cooperate to get a picture. I only saw two lights this time, but there could have been more.

I can't explain any of the lights. I've never seen anything like them before. I was surprised by the brightness of them. The didn't move or travel anywhere, just hovered and then went out. I don't know if this was all part of one entity or if it was 5 separate ones. If anyone else has seen something like this, I would love to know about it!
