Strange lights over Reno on Christmas eve

My family and I were out driving around looking at Christmas lights on the east side of the valley/basin, when I looked out the window of our car and saw a few slow moving orange/yellow lights moving horizontal through the sky but below the mountain peaks, they looked like they were flying right through the middle of the valley.

I had my wife stop the car and i got out to try to get a better look with my binoculars as i watched them one by one go across to the middle of the valley then go up what seemed like a mile or two high above the mountain peaks and then begin moving horizontal again and fade out one by one and their was no sound from the objects. They looked to be round in shape with slightly visible vertical panels.

The only other people I know who saw them from a differnt part of the valley was my brother and his wife with a few other people around them.

I placed calls to the local police and to the airport and nobody else had made a report and the airport said they didnt see anything.
