reddish orange lights traveling in same path from Northwest to South in Omaha, NE

In Omaha, Ne, on October 16, 2011 approximately 7:30 pm I went outside to move my car from my driveway into the garage. As I was pulling in I looked up at the sky and noticed a strange light appearing out of the northwest and moving towards the south.

It was quite bright and seemed to move very smoothly across the sky. I first thought it was a plane but it seemed to have too much red and orange colors on it. As it continued to move south , I grabbed my cell and called my neighbor and told her to come out into her front yard. When I hung up I saw another light appear out of the Northwest and start moving in the same path as the first. As the first moved further to the south, I was able to get a better look and it seemed it had fire coming from the bottom of it which caused the orange-ish-redish color – above the orange it was a bright white but I couldn’t really distinguish a particular shape.

Then there was another light appearing out of the northwest (now 3 in total) that started following the same path as the first two – they seemed to all gather in the south hanging suspended. I tried taking a picture with my cell phone but no luck. My neighbor was looking as well and trying to take a picture with her cell phone. I think there were 2 more lights appearing and moving the same direction. I then ran into the house to get my camera and by the time I got back out there, my neighbor said they were “all gone”. She then asked me if I had seen them form a triangle in the south but I didn’t as I had run into get my camera.
