Three light orange oval objects moving across the sky eastward just south of Vancouver

After we ended our fireworks show, I turned to the south and noticed three light orange oval objects moving across the sky eastward. They continued eastward across the horizon, until my sight was blocked by tall trees and houses. My first thought was that these objects might be hot air balloons because they seemed to hover/drift like hot air balloons. Then, I realized that didn't make sense--they moved much faster than hot air balloons. Since they appeared to be a fair distance away, I then assumed they might be planes from Portland airport or the military base nearby. Although, I didn't know how far away they were, they seemed to be too close together to be planes (I'm guessing 1-2 miles apart). The color of these objects never changed, and no other lights or anomalies were seen. Also, I never heard any sounds other than a few final fireworks going off or voices of our guests leaving.
