Multiple glowing red/orange orbs, stationary, moving, changing course over Portland, OR

My partner and I were going for a walk on the evening of Feb 14, 2017. We left the house at approx 5:45 and began our walk. We noticed two glowing objects in the sky, seemingly different from anything else we could see. Immediately I took out my phone and starting recording. The orbs appeared red/orange in color but were also flickering throughout the sighting. Moving between orange, red and at times a slight yellow. As we started to move towards the two objects we were able to see a third. All three sat there but then the started to move a little. The one on the left began to move quickly to the left while the middle one stayed stationary. Eventually the one on the right seemed to "blip" out. We chased the one moving to the left and by the time we saw it again the other two were gone. After deciding to try and get a better vantage point we ran around and eventually lost sight of the objects. I stood quietly and attempted to reach out mentally. I remember saying, "Show yourself to me one more time so I know I'm not seeing things." Shortly there after (approx two minutes) objects appeared in the sky again. This time there was only two. We ran down streets trying to get better views of them. During this time we observed the objects hovering, moving in a straight line, changing course during flight and eventually moving out of sight. Overall the entire incident lasted about 15 mins before we lost sight or they disappeared. Both of us were deeply impacted, myself particularly so.

We also took a fair amount of video which I have uploaded to YouTube. Here is a link to the main video with all footage edited together. I also included unedited raw footage in seven different clips, all available on the account. I also have all the raw footage saved across multiple locations if you need the original files for anything.
