Twelve orange globes in formation over Fresno

I saw approximately twelve orange globes hanging in the sky. I was in the NW part of Fresno looking East at 7 pm. At first I thought it was Christmas lights but quickly realized they were not attached to a house. When I pulled back around to get a good look, I saw that they were hanging in the sky hundreds of feet in the air. They were in formation. They made no sound. When I pulled over, another truck had already been parked and was looking at the lights. They said before I got there, the globes were in a straight vertical line, one on top of the other. When I first saw them they were not exactly vertical, but the whole group was more or less up and down, hundreds of feet top to bottom. Then they started to move very slowly into groups of three and four in what appeared to be triangles and the group became more horizontal. The spacing between the globes was nearly exact. We watched them for five minutes then they started to fade away one after the other.
