Red / orange lights in the sky

First I am an avid sky watcher. These were nothing like any known craft - civilian or military - that I have ever seen. I am also familiar with satellites etc. I was out on my back deck watching fireworks. When my fourteen year old son decided to go back inside. Thus I turned around to watch him go in. I immediately saw a very large and very bright object coming horizontally from behind a nearby tree. It was followed by five more.

They were all evenly spaced. Three in a horizontal line and then one slightly above the last with two more in a \ formation. They were moving very slow and very smooth with no sound. They moved from south to northeast and eventually seemed to 'twinkle' once and disappear.

I saw this exact same formation and movement happen three more times with what appeared to be more objects. My sixteen year old son came out before the last of these three occurances.

Then we saw two of these objects come from the east moving westward at the same rate of speed and the same 'twinkle' and disappearance. Then one item the same pattern two more times.

This was the strangest and most beautiful thing I have ever seen in the sky. It all occurred over one hour. We stayed out for another half hour but saw nothing unusual. I tried to get video and pictures. I ended up with a fifteen second video of one object. And four pictures of one object. I hit record numerous times but for some reason only one video recorded. It was just too dark for my camera to take any more pictures.

I really want to know what this was
