Strange, stationary, bright lights in Elyria, Ohio.

This particular night I was driving home and saw “strange lights” in the sky. No particular formation but they were different than the “weird lights” that have been spotted recently. They were a dim orange color looking to be at varying altitudes. They appeared to not be moving or moving very slowly.

When I got home I looked up and all they were the “typical” weird lights we’ve had on and off for a while now. Usually they are stationary; they look very low, and very bright. Sometimes they are flashing, sometimes not. But they typically show up around nightfall and I’ve done my best for quite a while to ignore them and chalk it up to a planet or something. There have been off times that one would shoot across the sky then stop suddenly and remain still. I have never stayed out to watch them for longer than a few minutes here and there because I find the whole thing very uncomfortable. I don't believe in "aliens" but I do find this occurance very strange and I just want to contribute if I can because the strange formation I saw while driving was very unsettling.
