reddish-yellow elongated diamond star-sized lights moving in elongated V formation against night sky that gradually disappeared

I was just out in my backyard around 9:40 pm Saturday, February 8th looking at the evening sky-some low clouds, a clear moom, stars bright against the night sky. And then I noticed these lights, as bright and slightly larger than the stars, the color of a lit match- something between red and yellowor, like a hot orange. There were 5 or 6 of them moving steadily from right to left in an elongated V formaton at a moderately steady pace. The one furthest to the right was highest with the next one slightly lower, the next lower still, the next dropping much lower, the next much higher and the last higher still.

They weren’t blinking or alternating color like lights from a plane, neither was there any noise like helicopters make. I followed them as they moved across the sky until they were blocked by large tree, so I went out into the street to follow them and noticed two or three of them were gone. I watched the ones remaining as they continued their path across the sky and noticed that one by one, from the right to the left, they were becoming fainter, losing color until they disappeared. And then they were gone..

It was truly the strangest thing I’ve ever seen and have no idea what they were. I’m not one for conspiracy theories and figure there’s an explaination other than extraterrestial, but I’m totally at a loss for what it is. When I did a search online, I was shocked to find so many hits of similar sittings over the last year and from many locations across the country.
