N. Truro/Provincetown sighting 7-5-12 just before midnight

7-5-12 just before midnight On this date and time my wife and I (both are 58 yrs. old and in good health) were on route 6A in N. Truro MA., walking to our car in the direction of Provincetown, MA.. Directly up 6A there arose a round orange object that at first looked like a fireball, but with twinkling around the edges. When the first one rose and then stopped in the air, we thought it was a firework that was about to explode into color. Instead it stayed there for a few seconds and another one came up behind it. We still thought it was 2 fireworks (although we had never seen fireworks like that). The 2 held still for several seconds and then 5 more came up as a group. When they did the 2 in the lead began to move, flying higher but in our direction. The 5 followed and once they were overhead (although much higher now), they one by one rose quickly out of sight.
