Four reddish-orange lights traveling slowly across the sky in Cincinnati, OH

On Halloween evening, my daughter, my neighbor and I were standing at the end of my driveway handing out candy to trick-or-treater’s.

As we were facing north, all three of us observed a line of 4 reddish-orange circular lights emerging slowly from behind the trees to the north. I saw what appeared to be a 5th reddish-orange light trailing the other four at a somewhat greater distance, but when the group of 4 emerged into our line of sight I no longer saw the 5th light.

The 4 lights traveled as if they were attached by a string, that is, the distance between them did not vary at all as they moved. Perhaps this indicates that they were attached to a craft of some sort, but none was visible from where we stood..

The lights traveled very slowly, from right to left, across our line of sight in a westward direction. As they moved far to the left they dimmed and flickered out, one by one, until they all disappeared. I tried to take note of whether they passed behind a cloud; I don’t think that was the case.

Relative to the diameter of a full moon, the length of the formation appeared to be about 6 times that diameter. The angle above the horizon was approximately 55-60 degrees as best I can determine. Each of these “orbs” was about 4 times larger than the brightest star I’ve ever seen.

None of us heard any sound from this craft, if that’s what it was, but given the distance from us, one wouldn’t likely hear any sound.

My neighbor dismissed this whole thing, saying they were “balloons”, but that doesn’t make sense. I’ve been thinking about this and decided it’s definitely out of the ordinary, so decided to report it. My daughter agrees.
