Orange lights in shape of inverted 'Y' flew 200 ft. overhead traveling East.

I was outside my friend’s house having a cigarette on his porch and looking up at the sky. I noticed 7 orange lights in the shape of an inverted ‘Y’ flying directly overhead moving West to East at a steady speed.

I know it was not an aircraft because all the lights were orange and no red or green lights and none were blinking. It was about 100-200 feet in the air.

I thought it might have been birds reflecting street light but it was moving too fast and I have never seen birds fly in a ‘Y’ shape and uniformly.

I am a 23 years old and am in college. I try to be logical as possible. I try to look at the sky whenever I'm outside but am skeptical when I see something. As for this I would say 70% sure it was a UFO.
