Bright orange lights hovering around the moon and horizon, then rising up and disappearing

When I was coming home from the store, I saw bright orange lights, almost like stars, floating in the sky.

Six of them were near the horizon almost behind the mountains and dimmer than the others, seven were to the right of the moon and almost looked like the little dipper but when two of them drifted further away it was very apparent that they were not stars. Three were to the left of the moon, one faded before the rest did but one was flashing faintly. Five more were directly above in the sky.

After about 5 minutes, they all began to rise and eventually drifted up and faded until they were no longer visible.

When I got home, several of my neighbors said they saw the lights too and couldn't make out what they were. I also called a friend in another part of town and she said she saw them as well, but further north meaning they were fairly close to the ground.
