Six orange/red balls of light fly over the tree line and dissappear in the clouds

I was walking outside with my Grandma, Son, and Boyfriend when my boyfriend started shouting look, look, so I turned around towards the east and there were two orange/red balls of light flying very low and slowly over the tree line.

They were very close to each other like they were in formation; the objects were coming from the East between Portland and Mitchellville Tn to the west towards Springfield Tn.

After they started to gain altitude one more came from the same direction and the first two got very dim and disappeared into a cloud. After the third ball of light gained altitude a fourth came from the same direction in the same manner.

These bright balls of red/orange followed the same flight pattern except for the first two that flew together. There were a total of six. As far as the timing in between each I can’t tell you, but they were coming one after another and right before they would disappear the next one would show up.

For about 13 years, I use ! to live on the edge of the Dunnellon FL. Airport, were they trained acrobatic planes and I have never seen any normal planes fly that close to one another. There was absolutely no sound and I would think six planes one after another would be very noisy. It was also very cloudy and we hadn’t seen any planes but heard a few earlier before this happened so, the orange/red balls were flying low enough beneath the clouds to see them.
