Several reddish/orange lights in formation seen by two witnesses north of Atlanta, GA (Marietta, GA) on Dec. 24, 2016.

On the way to a store on Dec. 24, 2016 (7:55 pm), several red/orange lights were observed in the sky by two witnesses as they traveled by car. They appeared a little larger than the stars in the background. They had a circular shape and did not blink. There seemed to be two batches of lights. Each contained five to six lights per group. The second group formed a square with one light in the middle. They moved slowly (if at all), then disappeared suddenly. It was as if they sank behind the tree line.

Note: There was an airplane off to the left that could be seen at the same time. The airplane displayed the normal characteristics of white light with blinking lights and was moving at typical airplane speed. The red UFO circles clearly appeared much different then the "normal" aircraft flying off to the left. The red UFOs where bigger in size as well.
