My girlfriend and I went to the local park to watch the 4th of July fireworks. We were looking up as the fireworks were supposed to start shortly. Just after 9 as it became dark, 2 round solid lights (objects) approached from the south. I thought they could be helicopters or military jets flying in close formation however it seemed that they were flying way too slow t obe jets, were way to big to be choppers (as well as making no sound). The two objects appeared as 2 bright yellow lights approx. 5x's the size of Venus in the night sky. The were flying side by side and extremely close together and got so close that the space between them decreased until there was none. At this time they separated slightly while banking to the NE. One of the UFOs then "turned off and was no longer visible as the other proceeded to the NE and approx. 30 sec. later it too disappeared (they did not fade, they disappeared). About 2-3 minutes later two more identical objects appeared/approached? from in the same place headed in the same direction and performed the same movements until one of them disappeared and then the 2nd one disappeared as well. We also noticed that neither of these objects/lights had NO flashing lights as planes and helicopters are required to and made no sounds. They displayed only one bright color, a pale very bright yellow. Finally a fifth craft w/ no visible partner UFO approached from the same direction and on the same course and we lost sight of it as the fireworks started up. There is absolutely no possibility that this was in any way an illusion or misperception of the fireworks (which did not even start until after the event ended. Neighbors also witnessed the UFOs and were equally puzzled by it. Also I am an amateur astronomer/sky-watcher so I am very familiar with astronomical event/objects and anomalies as well as flight vehicles in the daylight and nighttime. I felt excited, curious and a bit frustrated at not being able to identify the craft.
