With group of friends heading south in the intercoastal back in from Atlantic Ocean using the Port Everglades inlet on boat when one of the passengers pointed to the south eastern sky and we were all astonished to see five orange/red orbs floating in the sky. Four of them in a square (two vertically on top of two others) and then one floating below. They did not seem to be moving fast but they seem to move out of the square formation and were moving east slowly. They really looked like Chinese lanterns but I have never seen anyone release one of those off of our coast before. The thing that was so odd was how vivid their orange glowing characteristics were when compared to an airplane that was nearby. There is also an international airport within a couple miles, however, these orbs were not any plane that we have ever seen before. Anyhow, eventually we drove beyond a tree line where we could not see them anymore but they got really small as the seemed to be heading east. Wondering if anyone in the area saw this as well and have a clue as to what it could be?
