Witnessed 5 red lights in the sky that, a minute later, became one, then disappeared.

My Mother and I were on our way back home from a New Year’s Eve party. We were on our way back to her apartment. My husband, brother, and two young children were in another vehicle and were just ahead of us.

Up in the clear dark sky was a formation of five red fire ball looking lights. It did not have an actual shape. They were too close to be helicopters and too large to be an airplane. It also was not far from the ground, about fifteen stories high. At first my mother thought they could have been a firework that had just exploded and the lit up particles were falling to the ground. But they continued to stay in the sky. We pulled over to watch the lights for about a minute or so. They were not really moving too fast. We got back on the road and arrived at her apartment about a minute later. I looked up in the sky and there was only one light. I came back out after eating and there were no lights to be found.

I have checked the local newspapers and searched the internet to see if anyone else might have seen and/or reported these lights. So far nothing can be found. We were not the only people driving around last night who could have possibly seen this occurrence. My husband and brother also saw the lights in the sky and wondered what in the world they were. I’m a skeptic on these kinds of things. But I just can’t get over what I witnessed last night. Hopefully with this post maybe someone else can help identify what it was or possibly witnessed it too.
