When looking to the north from our front door we both saw 6 round orange balls. We are in the flight path for seatac and the in bound planes were landing from the south to the north. These were to the north. When looking from northeast Tacoma next to federal way it looked like they could have been right over Des Moines wich is just 10 miles north of our location. They were stacked up in formation then faded in and out. No cloud cover. Then side to side motion. Two of the balls fell very fast below the tree line never went back up. The others floated like a balloon would,then disappearing and re appearing then fadeding out. We took pictures and video.
