2 lights in still sky over NYC, seems to eject a 3rd light, 4th light off to the left not photographed

I shot this earlier this year over a park in Brooklyn, NY. I had previously dismissed them as Chinese Lanterns or drones or something, but recent posts regarding ejecta from UAPs has gotten me thinking about 1 particular aspect of this video.

Some things to point out/mention:

The particular aspect I am referring to is the quick moving (right to left) 3rd light at the start of the video. It's interesting to me in that it start out small and then begins to glow brighter as it travels. Also, if all of these lights are Chinese lanterns, it seems there would need to be a mighty gust of wind over there to shoot one light to the left while the other 2 continue to move to the right at a consistent clip. It appears to me that perhaps the 3rd light could have been ejected from the middle light somehow.

Speaking of "third lights", right before I shot this, a fourth light, same size as the first two, split off from the group and also went left (but if had ejected from one of the other lights, I didn't see it). So the little light that shoots left in the video almost seems like it was going toff to wherever that other light went, in a hurry.

I watched them long enough to deduce they were definitely not planes. I build and fly FPV racing drones and photography drones like the Mavic Pro with hundreds of hours of flight time so I'm fairly accustomed to observing flying objects both line of sight and FPV and I have a solid grasp on how all manner of drones move in the air...and these don't seem to be that to me, either.

In going down the rabbit hole on this subject, there seems to be a common thread of "an orange color" in a lot of mysterious orb sightings, and these are decidedly orange, no?

FWIW, around 17 seconds you can hear a kid exclaim that he sees them, too. Just mentioning that to confirm there were others there that saw, and FWIW, it did not seem "normal" at the time.
