4 small red disappearing lights in arch formation

My friend and I were out at night visiting the East End Waste Treatment Facility to check out the graffiti done on the wall by some local artists. At one point around 10:30, we began walking back to the car. I looked up and noticed three dim red lights ascending slowly into the sky, all in line in an arch. They seemed all very close to the ground. Neither of us could figure out what they were since they had no white blinking light or noise to show that it was a legitimate aircraft. We watched as the red lights climbed in the sky, and soon a fourth appeared. The first red light in line suddenly flickered and disappeared into the sky, followed soon thereafter by the second, third, and fourth.

The altitude of the lights were estimated to be around 1,000 feet or so.

We waiting outside the car until nearly 11:00 at night and seeing nothing else, left.
