Five amber orbs seen slowly moving over northern NJ sky five days after similar sighting nearby

As I walked out my front for to my car on the street out of the corner of my eye I saw a bright orange/amber light moving across the sky. It did not have hard edges so I believed it to be in the clouds. As someone who likes watching the ISS I stopped to watch it and quickly noted that it was 1) too big to be the ISS, 2) too orange to be the ISS, 3) moving too fast to be the ISS. As soon as the first object (that is, the first one I saw) moved out of sight behind my home I saw flickering behind the trees and a second object made its way from behind the trees into the clearing, loving in the same direction as the first, at the same speed, but seemingly farther away. This repeated several times and I saw 5 objects in total. I was unable to film the one of the objects as it was behind the trees but seemingly below the horizon. This object was not high enough to appear in the clearing.

I did a quick Google and Twitter search and found Tweets and web posts from FOX23 NJ and PIX11 both NYC-area news outlets. These posts were five days old (posted October 17, assumedly) and reported on a large cluster of similar objects over Paterson, NJ. There was video of the event.
