10 Redish orange lights not blinking near Dulles Airport Sterling VA. 20:25 till 20:34 12/27/13

On clear night on 12/27/2013 starting at 20:25 in Sterling VA. I turned on to the street where I live and before me I saw a string of ten orangish red lights that looked like Christmas lights hanging in the sky in a zig zag pattern. They were due south of me. They were close to the landing pattern of Dulles Airport. I picked up my phone and called my wife to come out and see what was going on. They slowly move off to the east (over Dulles Airport), getting dimmer and slowly disappearing.

These were not from a meteor that was braking up. They moved too slowly. The air planes that were landing at Dulles had to notice them. They seemed to be flying around them.

Wife saw them also.
