Orange Lights in Night Sky Over York PA

I left church after Good Friday services on March 29, 2013 in York, PA at about 8:30 PM EST and saw unfamiliar lights in the sky overhead, though somewhat in a southerly direction. The lights, about 15 in number, were orange in color and appeared to be a horizontal light source. They were brighter than the north star and seemed to be a few times larger than the north star from my vantage point. They DID NOT flicker, twinkle, or flash, but seemed to emit light much like a candle, but horizontally. They were randomly spaced and moved slowly across the sky in what seemed like a non-changing formation, and did so in approximately a west to east direction. I CAN NOT SAY that I saw any vehicle, aircraft, or any type of objects, just light sources. Actually, I do not recall hearing any sound coming from that area of the sky. I did not view that lights with any type of visual aid.

I drove to my home which is approximately a 2 minute drive from church hoping to show the lights to my wife. Though the lights had almost passed through our area by the time I got home, I expected that my wife would at least get a quick look at what I had seen. But, by the time we exited our home, the lights were gone. Unfortunately, I can not report on how that final departure happened.
