|Lights rise in groups of 3 or 4 from coastal horizon into sky
This past Saturday night around 10:30PM, my wife and I were on our porch and noticed some odd lights on the horizon. We saw a total of about 10 over about a 20 minute time span. They rose up from the horizon to the NE in groups of 3 or 4, perhaps around the Delray Beach area. They slowly traveled South rising upward along the coast and disappeared into the low cloud cover just about due East of our house. They flew quite close together and were too bright to be drones. They didn't have flashing lights like standard aircraft, but more of a steady orange glow. They may have been far enough away to be over the ocean, but that still doesn't explain what manner of craft they were.
Planes don't take off and group like that and I don't know of an airport North of the Boca Raton one nearer than the somewhat distant Palm Beach International. If anyone else saw them or has an idea of what they might be, I'd love to hear about it. Here is a photo of a group of 4 facing East NE with the rightmost one about to disappear into the clouds.
