Possible UFO sighting in Sunrise, Florida during 4th of July celebration.

While walking back home from Plantation Central Park in Plantation, FL. My husband and i could see the fireworks still going on North. We assume the fireworks were going on in Sunrise, Florida. After the fireworks were done there were 7 red lights in a vertical line much brighter than any firework, and they lingered brightly for about 20 seconds. Without saying a word to each other, both my husband and I stopped walking trying to figure out what we were looking at. The location did not coincide with Hollywood Intl. Airport or the Fort Lauderdale executive airport. The red lights were too far and too bright to be planes. We are about 10 miles from Hollywood Intl. Airport and could actually see planes heading in that direction so we could clearly compare the plane’s flashing red lights with the constant red light hovering at a fixed location in the sky. After the lights disappeared (not faded, just disappeared) my husband just said that was probably our first ! UFO sighting.
