5 fire-orange colored spheres,moving quickly and without sound in Woodbury

We were driving from Washington, DC, to Woodbury Ct on Rt 47 at 10:00 pm on Saturday, September 7, 2013. As we were passing Painter Hill Road my teenage son noticed what he thought was a very bright star. Then he said "Oh wow, it's orange and there are a bunch of them".

We pulled over, turned off the car and lights. We were both able to capture what we were seeing with our phones. We thought we were seeing a group of helicopters, mostly because of the speed they were moving, but then realized there was so sound coming from them at all. It was a very dark and still night with light drizzle. So whatever we were seeing was below the cloud cover.

We got out of the car to see and film better. The group of lights reminded me of what a car cigarette lighter looks like when burning. The orange color was very bright but looking at them did not hurt your eyes and they did not seem to emit any radiant light. One light would fade out then back on.

The group went over our heads and one light faded and disappeared even though I felt it was still moving. Then the rest were gone. This lasted about 4 minutes.

We then drove back to Woodbury, slowing down in the open areas to hoping to see the lights again, but did not.
