6 bright orange lights to the East over the Wasatch Mountain Range

Approximately 9 pm, saw 6 bright orange lights rising to the East over the Wasatch mountain range. At first, there were 5 lights were rising in a column which then separated, spreading out in different directions. All but one blinked out after only a few minutes, and the last one remained stationary for another minute or so. As that one blinked out, we noticed another rising below it. This final light was the brightest, and we were able to watch it for nearly 5 minutes as it rose upward then sat stationary for about 30 seconds. It flashed red and blinked out, also. We noticed that the object was still faintly visible. It appeared white and travelled to the north for several minutes, where we lost track of it.

We live just a few miles South of Hill Air Force Base, and we are accustomed to seeing objects in the sky. These were not jets, helicopters, or any other aircraft that we are used to seeing. There was no sound. I initially thought perhaps they were flares, but the objects moved upward, hovered, and changed direction. Also, the lights were orange and round/symmetrical. The odd way the last light flashed red before blinking out was unlike anything I have seen before. We watched the news for some kind of report, but there was nothing. Surely, there are others who saw this!
