4 flying orange bright ball shape objects that I filmed at night. I have never seen anything like it before

I was standing outside having a smoke and I look to the right and I seen, then filmed 4 bright orange round objects flying in the same straight pattern coming from the top of houses and not going much higher all the way across the sky. The objects seemed to grow larger then they all glowed even bigger and brighter then they al got a bit smaller and then stayed lit. I'm only 13 miles from a major airport and very well aware of what any airplane is flying at night with their lights blinking and on. I have NEVER seen anything like this in my life.

I can share the phone camera videos if you tell me what these are and write back

((ADDENDUM/REVISED STATEMENT FROM WITNESS))

I was standing outside having a smoke facing south and I looked to the right (west) and I seen a bright orange round object flying just over the tree tops moving to the Southeast.

As I watched it coming closer, it seemed to get larger all of a sudden then shrink in size then it glowed in a pulsating manner. I then pulled out my cell phone video camera and then all of a sudden there was another one coming from the same direction and it did the same thing. I filmed a total of four of them and they were in sight for about 30 to 40 seconds each. I'm only 13 miles from a major airport in Minneapolis, MN, and very well aware of what any airplane is flying at night with their lights blinking on and off. These were not airplanes.

Again, this was filmed on December 25, 2013 at 6:30 PM Central time. After more research, I have now ELIMINATED the thought of one of these 4 filmed objects in the sky of possibly being a recent sighting of a red meteor shower because they move downward and these had no tails, these objects were going sideways from west to east. I ELIMINATED the thought of one of these possibly being an orange chinese lantern because if they are carried by the wind, the winds were going SW that day and at the time recorded, and these objects were moving SE.

I have NEVER seen anything like this in my life.

I would like credit for the filming please.
