Floating red orange objects

I was driving home from work around 5:15 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. and I saw several (maybe 50) objects about 40-50 feet up that looked a bit like a stream of luminarias floating over SR 500.

I was driving east, they were moving from north to south over an area near the Vancouver Mall and the onramp to I-205 southbound.

I'm a journalist with a science writing background. I don't know what these objects were. I had thought they were perhaps some sort of display from the mall, but sources there said there was nothing going on that night.

We've had one other report via email to the paper of another person seeing them over I-205 maybe a half hour or so later.
