Orange Orbs

I was leaving a store around 8pm and looked up for the moon. I noticed orange/yellow pulsating lights ascending from the north/east part of the sky. First I thought they were the street lights but there were too many of them and they were forming patterns, there were about 12 orange/yellow orbs. They were orange in the middle and yellow around them. They looked like pulsating balls of energy. I watched them for for five minutes across the street before calling my wife. I told her to go outside and look east but her view from our home was obstructed and too far away. They formed into two circle patterns and then broke away from each other and then reformed into two circles again. I watched them for another 5 minutes and came home. I grabbed the video camera and went back to the store, all but two had left. I tried to record them but they wouldn't show up on the camera. And then a few minutes later they both extinguished. Also when I arrived back for the second time there was an ambulance and firetruck in the parking lot where I had seen them and the paramedics had loaded someone into the ambulance. The orbs had been right over where the ambulance and firetruck were and I'm not sure if that was just a coincidence. My feeling of the objects was just amazement and awe.

After this happened I posted my sighting on the Mufon website. Well on November 7 I had another experience. I was at the store the same store where I had first saw these orbs and went to swipe my rewards card and all 4 of the self checkouts simultaneously froze. I didn't think anything of it but then about ten minutes later I was at a drive through restaurant and saw one singular orb, the same color and distinction as the previous ones. I went to ask a group of people if they saw it too, turned around and it was gone. Now this was bizarre. When I told my wife she became concerned and told me that the only way to get rid of them is through prayer and she prayed that they will leave me alone. Haven't seen anymore, but I am still curious. I don't know what the hell they were. I didn't follow up with Mufon because it is scary and I don't want any investigation as to what they are, I don't think that I want to know. Someone said they could be plasma balls controlled by magnetism, but I'm not sure what I believe or who is responsible.
