Four very large orange glowing orbs arising from a nature preserve in North Naples Florida observed by 5 adults March 2013

The event occurred approximately at 9:30 pm on the evening of March 20, 2013 while out walking our dog. Our community is surrounded by a nature preserve and to the north end there are are no developments for many miles which we verified with google earth. We first observed a very large orange glowing orb which ascended from the north end of the nature preserve moving straight up in a fast but steady pace to quite a high elevation at which point it no longer glowed but we could still see lights as it traveled eastward. Needless to say we were quite surprised when another glowing orange orb followed suit around 15 seconds later and did exactly the same as the first and joined the first orb. This series of events happened 2 more times, four orbs in total. The four objects travelled together in a straight line one after the other and then quickly disappeared. We did not hear any type of engine noise at all and as this community is dead quiet at night if there h! ad been any type of noise being emitted we would have heard it. We observed the first two orbs ourselves until our neighbours came out to greet a visitor arriving in a car and we then pointed out to them the last two orbs. The night sky was very dark that night so it was difficult to tell if there was much cloud coverage. While out golfing in the morning, the day after the event, two helicopters were seen circling over the area where the orbs appeared from. The engines from the helicopters were clearly heard. All observers we would estimate as being in their mid fifties, university educated .
