8 or more bright lights hovering just above the trees

Hovering just above the tree line north of the cul-de-sac at the top of my street as I drove up and prepared to turn into my driveway. About 8 round lights in a loose formation. At first glance looked like the handle of the big dipper but then noticed they were too large and close to be stars, large like hot air balloons when just a few hundred feet off the ground but all balls of light, nothing attached, no movement or sound so not normal air craft. They looked to be about a football field's distance or a little more away from my street. One was lower and to the right and seemed to be moving slowly towards my direction. I went and got my husband and sister. We had to get back down the driveway to see beyond the trees up to where they were still there only some had moved to the north and appeared a bit smaller but all still too large to be normal and most not moving at all. Now, 2 were lower on the right just above the tree tops and glowing more yellowish as twilight was deepening towards dark. One still seemed to be moving very slowy towards us and seemed to be with the he one furthest on the right which was lower in the sky. That one then glowed red at the center and then the light went out completely and we could see what appeared to be a tall rectangular shape slowly drifting down toward the ground. It looked like some kind of item large enough to be a craft of some sort. Then the other lights slowly moved off to the north. No sound at all. They looked to be over some open acreage to the east of Rte. 29. We'd never seen anything like that before. After that we heard what sounded like a small engine plane come to that area and circle around, but it was dark by then so we couldn't see it, only hear it...almost as if it came to investigate.
