Red Orange spheres seen in Peoria Il

My husband and I were out to take our dog for her last potty break of the night at 11:00 pm when he pointed out a strange arrangement of lights north of us. The lights were red and orange in color and brighter than any star in the sky. The sky was clear and the stars were visible and the lights I saw were not stars or Chinese lanterns. The lights were arranged forming a round x, five for each curved line, then more lights, four that I was able to spot. I probably missed a few because I was trying to record it with a cell phone camera that did not capture a thing. The four lights seemed to launch from below and join the moving x, then all the lights that were forming the curved x disappeared. After that, only three were left that just moved upward north and vanished into the sky. This beautiful occurrence lasted only 5 min.
