5 bright , red pulsing orbs flew over head

On July 4th, My family and I were watching fireworks, and I saw a Light moving above the treeline ,east of where we were at. It was very bright and different from any color of the fireworks. I asked my husband, who is an airplane mechanic, if he knew what it could be .He could not identify the object. It was red in color and approached quickly. As it passed overhead, it started to disappear behind some low clouds, but we could see that it had no blinking lights and it pulsed slightly.It retained it's round shape. It moved to the west, over the trees and out of our vision.

I looked back tword the east and saw another identical object following the same path. We watched it go overhead and disappear in the clouds. There was no sound from the object.

Looking East again, we could see 3 more red orbs in the distance. One was closer than the other two. They traveled over our heads again,to the west. I captured some pictures of the last two orbs that moved together. They too, moved silently into the clouds in a westerly direction.

Sometime later, A jet flew from a south easterly direction to the west tword the direction of Whidbey Island. The jet was very distinctive with it's flashing lights and sound.

My husband and I are a little skeptical as to what we saw. I just know it was something that him, nor I could identify.
