Sighting Details

My family and I saw 3 objects above the Ocean Isle Pier, NC on Sat, Dec 28, 2013 btwn 745 and 750 pm. The first two were twinkling orange lights moving together from northeast to southwest and seemed to parallel the strand. My guess is they were btwn 1000 and 2000 ft in altitude and reminded me of seeing a campfire at a distance and seemed to be orange to amber in color. I saw no ACL's and they produced no sound. I assumed they were helicopters flying together, but did not hear blades or see any normal lights. They seemed to gain altitude and move further off the beach and finally disappeared after less than 2 minutes. They seemed to move about 2 miles the total time we saw them. We have 2 very bad still pictures of them. After about 5 minutes another single light appeared and looked be the same light and flying in the same direction. It also gained altitude, moved further out to sea and finally disappeared. No ACL's or sound just like the first two. We have a video of this one that is less than a minute long. Never saw anything like this before in all my years of stargazing. I am very sure they were not helicopters because they just disappeared in the sky, no other lights and no sounds when they passed. Several other aircraft were visible in the distance. It was partly cloudy with stars visible in the northeast. I estimate the objects were between 35 and 45 degrees above the horizon from our vantage point.
