My boyfriend was in front of our house smoking a cigarette. He looked up and saw 2 lights in the sky. He came and got me and when I got outside there were 5-6 lights in the sky. As we stood there and watched more and more lights kept appearing until we saw over 20 total. They would appear from behind the buildings in the NW and flew towards the West. Each light flew independently. Some of them went in a seemingly straight line until they disappeared above the clouds. Some of them would stop and hover then keep moving. Some of them changed direction. Ultimately they all disappeared into the clouds. They just kept coming.. there were anywhere from 2-6 of them visible at one time. All the lights were round and glowed a very bright orange gold color. (Unfortunately you cannot see how bright they were in the video, or how gold they were. In the video they look more whitish). Some of them flew on a lower trajectory and some flew higher; the lowest ones looked to be about 30 degrees and the highest were maybe 50-60. I've never seen anything like it and I live in a very urban area; I see helicopters and planes all the time. After about 2 minutes of watching I ran inside and got my phone to film it.. the film is about 4 minutes long but they were coming before and after I stopped filming; I'd say about 20 minutes total.
