Three Circles of lights moved across the night sky.

Around 8:30 pm on Jan 31, 2011, my mother called my attention to strange moving lights in the night sky which she saw through the front window of our home. We went outside into the back yard and watched a circle of orange lights moving in a straight line from southwest to northeast about 45 degrees above the horizon for about seven to 10 seconds until they disappeared. The lights appeared go out rather than fade with distance. The size of the circle of lights was smaller than the moon and I believe that I could have covered the lights with my forefinger had I held out my arm. We immediately noticed another set of circular red lights moving across the sky above us from south to north almost directly above us at the same rate of speed as the first, and then another. We went through the house to the front lawn and there appeared to be 15 to 20 sets of circular lights high in the sky, much closer than stars but not moving - they are still there at 10:52 P! M.
