5 Orange orb like objects over Bristol, UK

We were in a pub, outside late in the evening when my friend (who is a physicist, amateur astromoner) pats my shoulder and tells me to look up. There we saw this orange orb moving from a South to West direction at constant speed. It looked large but impossible to tell because we had no idea how far it was. At first we thought "hey look...thats quite an odd satellite" It would fade out over the horizon.

Even though we thought this was interesting, we didn't think much of it until 7 minutes later at 11 50 we saw another identical orange object, same direction, same speed. This happened again every few minutes until we saw 5, all of them orange.

We are extremely baffled.

I myself am a planespotter and amateur astronomer and I have been researching UFOs for a couple of years, and I can assure you that what we were looking at was not an airplane that I know of. We are just extremely baffled by this.

We then thought they could be missiles but there were no contrails.
