40 orange flickering lights

I looked outside of my front kitchen window and saw a number of flickering orange lights at first i thought someone was sending up fireworks then i realised they were too slow and more and more of them appeared. They were too slow for planes, and made no noise so could not be helicopters (you can always hear a helicopter here from miles aways) I watche dthem and counted as more and more appeared i got to 40 before some disappeared behind a cloud, i watched for about 5-10 minutes as they slowly moved round to the side window of the house and disappeared behind a cloud. I tried to take a photo but my camera is not very good in the dark, by the time i remembered the camera had a video setting there were only 4 lights left.

I can honestly say i have never seen anything like it it would not look out of place in an alien movie. 40 flickering orange lights, too slow for a plane, and too silent for anything else, a formation that i could draw but not describe. the sky was a darkening grey but with dark clouds (typical english night) no stars out yet.

i did not see anything else in the sky at all not even the normal flicker of planes,
