Orange lights/fireballs

On Saturday evening at approximately 10.45pm my partner and two friends noticed some strange looking orange lights in sky. They were round in shape, looked like fireballs and were completely silent. There were around 20 of these 'fireballs' in total.

At first they appeared in the shape of a star constellation, then the fireballs started to separate and move in different directions. Sometimes the lights would go out and then come back on.

It was hard to focus on the lights, they weren't sharp, but almost out of focus.

The lights were clearly visible across the sky for over half an hour. The sky was quite dark, clear, no clouds, the weather mild and still.

We noticed the stars whilst travelling along the London Road in Cheltenham towards the village of Charlton Kings.
