Around 7 orange lites, 3 of which were flying in a rectangular formation.

Don't have much time as I'm going to bed! Took the dogs out and saw what I initially thought were three helicopters flying in a somewhat triangular formation. Didn't notice any flashing lites, though. Just orangish lites probably 3 - 4 miles (estimate) to the northeast. Objects were coming from the east. Was curious so I went in to get my cellphone but too far away for a pic. Saw more coming from the same direction, but not in formation. Just one after another. Went back in to find binoculars and viewed only one. No flashing lites at all, just an orange light. All objects seemed to be going in what may have been a clockwise motion. They came from the east, rotated to the northwest, the disappeared to the north-northeast (possibly into the clouds/haze. I'm estimating there may have been 7, but possibly more. May not have been an "alien" ufo, but pretty definitely not airplanes/helicopters (also I listened for, but heard no noise). Also, based on their "flight" pattern, I don't think they were Chinese lanterns and they were not falling as flares would fall. Anyway, this is the first time I've filed a report. (But sometime I will tell you an interesting story about a UFO in Indiana around 1982. Includes a military conference call that included a general and some interesting comments from our control tower at Grissom AFB in Peru Indiana.)
