Red orbs in sky, brighter than planes, moving from Boeing area in Everett toward eastern horizon.

I was home alone and happened to look outside the window at the dark sky. Fireworks had been going for two days, so I did not notice the lights at first.

Then I realized these lights were brighter than an airplane and there were three of them moving horizontally across the sky. These three appeared to be in a triangle formation to each other.

Then, over the hill from where they appeared, two more red orbs appeared. They moved slowly like a plane but appeared much brighter than a plane. Typically planes come from much further away and the flight pattern from Paine Field is towards the house, perpendicular to these light's pattern. I kept trying to adjust my eyes and decide if it was the smoke from the fireworks that made them appear so close and bright. Also, more lights continued to rise up from behind the hill, two more and finally one last one.

That was when I began to video record with my phone.

They moved across the same path as the previous lights and eventually faded into the horizon. I did not assert that they were UFO's until I saw the reports on this website.
