2 round balls of fire floating west to east across the sky then up and out

On New Year Eve January 1st 2014 between 12:01 and 12:05 we were in our bedroom looking out the sky and taking in the fireworks over Las Vegas both on TV and out the window.

We witnessed two bright orange balls of fire cross the sky. The objects came from the direction of Primm towards Las Vegas. I would estimate the speed at 300 to 400 mph and the altitude was 8000 feet. One first crossed the sky and I watched it go up into the sky and disappear. Approximately three minutes later a second fire ball following the identical flight path repeated.

I would estimate the size of each object to have been 20 feet in diameter. The flames were clear to see. The whole object was a glow. The flames were going up, the flames were not training behind. We were thinking that it was a new fireworks device in the form of a drone because it was flying. It was not shooting across the sky; it was floating across the sky.

It has been 36.5 hours since we have seen the objects and we are deeply concerned.
