Multiple orange globes traveled slowly across skyline then dissapeared

Im not entirely sure what it was that myself, girlfriend, father, and several other witnesses saw this night, but after seeing the pictures fro Indiana on your site it has made me want to post this to say what we saw was VERY similar.

It started off with three to four orange in color globes moving across the sky very slowly. (Not sure on the direction, but if I went back to the site I could for sure use a compass to identify) At first we all thought it may have been helicopters or some other kind of aircraft, but as in the Indiana description as they went across the sky, they dissapeared.

After we noticed that the objects kept coming across the skyline, it started to draw our attention more and more. I would say about 4 objects had passed when I started to actually count as they kept coming. By the time the last one past, my father and I had counted 18 crafts, but there could have been up to 25 or so as we did not immediately start counting.

Others were joking that it was Aliens, and one man kept suggesting that it was just helicopters. Im having a hard time believing it was helicopters, especially that many in flight, in no distinct patters, flying across the sky at almost 10PM at night. There was no sound, just the orange globes traveling high enough and far enough to where it could not possibly be fireworks. And I also have a hard time believing that helicopters could fly as high as these crafts were. No way they were airplanes either, I know and have seen so many airplanes in the sky at night, and these were not. I dont care what anyone tries to tell me, this was something odd, dont know what it was, but they surely were not an airplanes or helicopters.
