Collection of orange orbs in French night sky

I was on holiday at my dads house in France. Rue de St Remy, Lathus. It was 1:16am and I was lying in bed when something caught my eye out the window, there is no blind or curtain. I looked and saw multiple orange orbs gliding through the sky . Lathus is a small village with no street lights. The sky was pitch black so the orbs were very noticeable. There were no clouds so nothing obstructed my view.

I immediately turned off my bedside lamp and went to the window and started to record on my iPhone. At first I was filming through the window pane, I then opened the window (it opens inwards) so that is a jerky part in the video. The orbs show as white on the video but in actuality they were bright orange, silent and steady.

I don’t judge distance well so can not give an estimate of how close they were but they were vivid and bright. Directly opposite the house I was in is another house with a graveyard directly behind it. I have included pictures with red lines drawn to show directionality of where I was viewing from and where the orbs travelled to.

All the orbs followed the same direction as each other. You see them disappear in the video, this is when each one passed behind the house opposite me. What puzzled me is that they did not appear again anywhere, they went behind that house and simply vanished.

You can not see the house opposite in the video, as already said, it was pitch black so nothing showed up.

Thank you.
