Red orbs over Long island sound seen from Milford,CT

At around 9:45 pm on July 4 2009. My wife a 37 year old stay a home mom and I a 35 year old auto body tech and my daughters and also some people around us were watching fireworks on Laurel beach in Milford,CT. (We were not drinking alcohol). When a large round red ball that we first thought was a firework or a flare moved slowly across the sky. We were on the beach in Milford,CT and watched the object move across Long Island sound starting at West Haven beach area moving towards Long island, NY and then disappearing into thin air what seemed to be half way across long island sound. The reason I know it was not a firework or a flare is because it lasted 10-15 min. around 30 min went by and then we saw the same thing happen again almost like a recording of what we just saw. It to lasted 10-15 min before disappearing. I also know the UFO was not a aircraft because I have lived in this area my whole life and know the flight paths of aircraft between Tweed New Haven airport and Sikorsky airport in Stratford,CT. Also there were know beacons on the UFO it was just a solid red ball or an orb.
