Viewed in the western skys just above treetops. Round, orange in color lights.

My wife and I were returning home. She's 41 year old housewife. I'm 39 year old and manage a steel distribution warehouse. We both grew up in the area. We were traveling north on Hwy 63 and observed the lights to our left or west at treetop level. We first observed two sets of orange in color lights. They then joined together as one and then spit into four horizontial lights. Then they slowly turned in the sky untill they were vertical. We heard no sound in conjuction with this event. We pulled over on the shoulder and my wife got out and observed the local police car turn around diretly to our east. The event lasted 3-5 minutes before we lost sight of the objects. It was like they just disappeared.
