Grouping of small bright orange lights seen in Hillsborough County, Florida

When I was taking my nightly walk, I noticed 10 to 12 orange lights in the southwest sky at 8:35 PM. The lights were, from my perspective, smaller but better defined than the stars of the night. They appeared to be stationary with only 1 or 2 displaying very slight movement. I texted my wife who was at home about a block away, but by the time she received the text and then scanned the same vicinity of sky (about 5 minutes later), they were all gone. I am baffled by what I saw. At first I thought of flares, but these lights did not drift downward as is typical with flares.They had no characteristic of fireworks. I pondered if they were drones with high intensity orange lights. I would love to know if anyone else in Hillsborough County or west central Florida saw this amazing sight.
