6-8 orange orbes in the night sky

On 02/19/2016, at approx. 1935 hrs., while walking into work, myself an several people witnessed several orange round lights in the western sky. At first I thought the lights were a formation of U.S. Army helicopters (Ft. Carson is approx. 30 mi. north of Pueblo), but realized the lights were orange and not white. Also no side aircraft lights that are required while flying over a populated area.

I work hospital security, I am retired, but served in the USMC and was a Sheriff Deputy. Also standing with me was another Security Officer who is also retired, who also served in the USMC and was a captain with the Colo. Dept. of Corrections.

I stopped the other officer an pointed to the lights, at this time, several other hospital employees (shift change) and civilians were also watching these lights.

After I figured these lights were not helicopters, I figured they were flares. The lights started low in the western sky, over the south side of Pueblo, moved at a steady speed and after about 2 to 3 min, pos. more, were almost directly over the hospital slightly to the south. (Hospital entrance faces south). I have seen several flares, hand held fired, artillery fired and dropped from aircraft, Also these lights did not emit light like flares do. Both me and the other officer decided these lights were unknown. At this point we started to walking to work, then I got the idea to take a picture, and about a 16 second video. We entered the building and did not see what happened to the lights.

Now at 2200 hrs., I drive our security vehicle, so I listen to Coast to Coast, and hear the UFO reports from Peter Davenport (?) so I decided to file this report. At the time I witnessed this, there is already a report of this.
