Multiple Orange & Red Spheres Over Southern Mexico

I was celebrating New Year's Eve with a number of other people in a restaurant near my home. We all saw a bright orange light moving roughly from west to east, and we stopped all of our festivities (musicians included) to watch. The fireworks for the evening had ended several minutes before. The sighting took about 4-5 minutes before the sphere was out of sight. It flew (floated) directly over the restaurant. I estimate its height to be no more than 4,000 feet above the ground. The object appeared small, maybe a few meters across, and, just like last year's sighting, emanated a fuzzy orange color that looked a lot like a plasma. There was no sound, and several other attendees said they had also seen the same kind of event last year.

From there, I walked back to my home, and continued to look for more orange lights. I wasn't disappointed. I sat on my rooftop, and after about 5 minutes, another orange sphere came from the north and traveled almost exactly south, until it was out of sight. It floated quite a distance away over the ocean. So from where I live, I was looking directly west. There was no sound. About two minutes later a third orange sphere, this time maybe 300 yards closer to my home, floated by, north to south. Again, no sound. These orange spheres were then followed by two red spheres, each about two to three minutes apart, and each one slightly closer to my home, by what appeared to be equal distances. It looked as though they were all following a specific north to south direction in a grid pattern, all of the objects acting together.

If I take all of the spheres as one complete sighting, then the sighting lasted a total of about 30-35 minutes.
