7 bright orange glowing lights in a steady formation going NW.

My husband and I came home after picking up groceries late that night. As we were getting everything out of the car I noticed seven large low bright orange glowing balls flying in a uniform formation.

There were three in a line, side by side with three in a line with one light below them in a triangle shape. It may have been separate objects or lights on one very large circular or oval shaped object--- it reminded us a lot of the phoenix lights- just glowing orange.

There was no sound or "jet trails". They looked similar to paper glowing air lanterns-- but I do not believe they were because the wind was blowing in the opposite direction, and the objects kept their shape and stayed true.

They were moving in a northwestern direction, traveling at a speed similar to geese flying.

I can't believe someone else saw this too I blogged about it and received no response. I saw something similar on another post on this reporting sight for the same day, and now I know that others saw, and I want to confirm what we saw was very similar.

This is our first unidentified object that I have absolutely no explanation for.
