Twelve orange/red orbs glided across the sky of Lafayette, LA on Christmas Eve

Tonight, on Christmas Eve, my sister, my mother, my mothers boyfriend, and I all witnessed the same UFO sighting. My sister and I are university students, my mom is a executive assistant at a helicopter company, and my mothers boyfriend is a lawyer.

My mother and her boyfriend went outside to put a new registration sticker on my license plate and my mom immediately starting shouting for us to come outside and look at something.

My sister and I ran outside and my mom pointed up at the sky excitedly. We looked up and saw these orange/red orb looking objects in the sky. There were about twelve of them and they were gliding across the sky. It was completely silent and they looked as if they were pulsating; they would get brighter and dimmer.

They followed one another across the sky in a sort of line, but not a straight one. Some were closer to one another than others and a couple of them were in a triangle-like formation. The whole event lasted about two minutes and when they got about halfway across the sky, one by one they faded and disappeared.

I've always believed in UFOs but seeing one in person made my jaw drop. I sat outside for thirty minutes after with the hopes of seeing it again, but they never reappeared.
