Sighting Details

Our town had finished it's Labor Day fireworks show and we were just sitting on my lawn, talking. Suddenly we noticed through the trees behind my building, a red-orange light rise up, over the treeline, and hover. It hovered for close to 2 minutes. We speculated that it looked like the flames in a hot air balloon but it was 9 pm, it had been raining and thundering off and on all day, and fireworks had just ended about 15 minutes ago. I tried to record it on my cellphone but the light looks white or even yellow-ish on camera. As we're watching, the light suddenly makes a sharply-angled turn (almost like an L), and rapidly flies off and then suddenly just disappears. Seconds later, we see a second red-orange light rise up in the same place where the first one did, but this one did not hover. It made the same sharply-angled turn and also disappeared. Right before the second light disappeared, the third one rose--again from the same spot-- and made an even sharper-angled turn and disappeared. The third light was faster. There was no sound, nothing else in the sky during this, although shortly after the third light disappeared, we did see an airplane because we compared it to what we had just seen. And though in my pictures and on my video, the light looks white or even yellow-ish, it was actually a vibrant, VERY bright red=orange. We wouldn't have noticed it and watched it otherwise.
