3 bright red dancing lights

I was alerted by my dog barking and thought perhaps she had heard an intruder in our garden.

I turned on the light of the garden door and looked out of my living room window which is one floor above the garden room where my dog was. I did not turn on the light in the room I was in, so I could see out quite clearly.

At first when I saw a red flash I thought it was an intruder throwing away a ligthed cigarette butt. But then I was amazed to see the 'cigarette light' and 2 other bright red lights moving between my neighbours side of the garden fence and mine. The movement was similar to that of a butterfly - a fluttery dance movement.

One of the lights then moved off at a very rapid speed to the end of my garden passing up over bushes and trees and up over the roof top of the house opposite (approx 120 yards in distance). The other two lights then followed after a few seconds. The lights were a very deep red colour and approx. 2 - 3 inches in circumference.

I have eliminated the possibility of it being someone using laser lights because of the angle of the movements. I have tried to find out if perhaps they were luminous insects - the firefly was one possibility but we don't, as far as I know, get them in this part of the world.

So who knows what they were?
