Sighting Details

It was 8:45 in the evening and I was taking the dog out. As I walked out the door to let the dog out, I always make it a habit to look up at the sky to see what the stars look like for the evening. Today was a bonus! As I looked out to the west I saw a red glowing orb moving slowly towards the east. I saw it go overhead above the condo unit I live in. Curiosity got the best of me and I walked out and around the building to see if I could continue seeing it. As I tried looking for it, I saw another red/orange orb following the same path the first one went through. As I fumbled for my phone to see if I could record it, I saw a THIRD red/orange orb following the exact path and moving slowly. THAT is what I was able to capture on the video, the 3rd object. The whole event lasted about 3mins. All of the glowing lights appeared to be above & below the clouds as I could see the clouds affecting the glow. Which made it appear randomly pulsating. But I'm not sure if that was the clouds. It definately did NOT have blinking lights, like a plane normally does. This was different. And relatively BIG in the sky. It made no noise and it kept a consistent slow speed across the sky. It went directly overhead. The best way to visually describe it is like looking at a slightly out of focus point of light moving across the sky.
