5 orange and red flashing lights flying west in a formation

On Wednesday, January 25, 2012 at approximately 7:20 in the evening, I went to the porch door to let our dog in (east side of the house).

As I opened the door, I looked north and to the sky and saw five red and orange flashing lights moving in a formation. I immediately ran to the kitchen and yelled for my wife.

She, along with our three children, came to the porch door and witnessed not all five lights, but some of the moving lights. The light formation was moving west.

I walked through the house to the front door, put on my shoes and went out to the sidewalk. I saw nothing. I walked backwards with my eyes in the same spot and still saw nothing.

I walked north towards the end of the street and still nothing.
