Five Red lights in linear formation seen over Lake Erie.

On the night of June 25th, I exited my house for a night walk and was surprised to find my cousin parked on my street talking on her cell phone and looking at the sky. I looked up and I saw five reddish lights moving from west to east in a linear formation. My cousin was talking to the rest of my family on her cell phone, and encouraged them to come out of the house and see the strange occurrence. Many family members came out the front door I previously exited and looked towards the sky to see two of the remaining lights. The lights seemed to disappear in order of most eastern (first) to the most western (last). Once the lights disappeared presumably into the clouds, as I recall, there was significant cloud cover (enough to obscure the moon but thin enough to still allow some light to shine through). I saw few if any stars in the sky, which made the red lights much more noticeable. So it seemed the lights were travelling below the clouds. I was certain that they were moving to the east as their pathway took them behind a tree (from my vantage point) indicating movement.

Later, after some hesitation, I decided to go on my walk and ultimately stopped at a nearby park, overlooking Lake Erie. I sat on the bench to rest and observe the lightning on the northern horizon. Then I was surprised to see a single red light almost identical the previous lights I had seen was rising from the east until it stopped abruptly. It seemed to flicker for a moment and then disappeared without perceivably moving. From that point, I walked home and prepared for bed.
