Orange fireballs in a diamond/trapezoid shape between Central Parkway and Humes Lane in Florissant, MO

My husband, son and his girlfriend and I were visiting my mom's house in Florissant, MO, (between Central Parkway and Humes Lane) and she was outside having a cigarette when she noticed a set of approximately 6 orange colored lights in a large diamond/trapezoid shape in the sky, above the tree line, moving towards the west.

She yelled for all of us to come outside to look. There were two sets of 6 lights, one after the other and they faded and disappeared and never reappeared (like as if they had passed behind a cloud or something) after approximately 4-5 mins. They were there and then gone.

I was not able to look at them through binoculars or take a picture, we were too busy just watching them.

My husband is 37. my son and his girlfriend are 17 and 16 and my mom and her husband are 55 and 51. I am 36. None of us were under the influence of alcohol or drugs when we saw these lights.
