Strange Orange Orbs

Has anyone had any experiences recently witnessing strange orange or maybe other coloured orbs zooming very low in the sky?
Anyone know what they are?
And No! I hadn't been drinking.
They were not lanterns as I have seen those before. They float up. These weird lights had a definite trajectory and absolutely no sound.

The tail lights of Santa's sledge, maybe?
I saw three of them (orange coloured) on Christmas night. I have no idea what they were. They were static - just hanging in the air - before zooming off at breakneck speed.

On Boxing day I decided to take a walk around the block to get some air and saw four bright orange orbs with what looked like a light emitting from the underneath. They were very low and travelled quite fast across the night sky. They made absolutely no noise and flew all in line until one sped off to the left.
I was walking with someone and they were just as perplexed as me as to what they were. I wish it was the tail lights of Santa's sledge.
I'd hazard a guess it's chinese lanterns?
oh, didn't read your last paragraph, id still go with the lanterns though.
Ok, so are Nadis and naomi24 in the same area, or has this been a nationwide occurance?
I am leaning towards the lantern theory on this one!
-- answer removed --
The one I saw year before last certainly wasn't a Chinese lantern and was seen a few mins after 10 miles away. It went from one side of vision to the other in less than a second.
It could be all the excess spray tan in the air bonding to form minor planets.
there was a programme on the 'Discovery' channel or some such, they couldn't - if you'll excuse the pun, shed any light on what they were either, they had fighter pilots, weather experts, geologists, and all sorts speculating. I've seen them too (always totally sober!) literally 'dance' in the sky - nothing man-made could have possibly moved at the speed and dexterity that these orbs moved at. The programmes conclusion was, they were UFO in the true sense of the words, that is unidentified flying objects.

I am quite sure they were not lanterns as I had seen some only a few days before Boxing day and they just floated upward with the breeze flickering and then extinguished.
The four bright round objects I saw on Boxing eve sped across the sky at a very low altitude and they moved across the sky, not upward like lanterns. The one that sped away from the other three went with purpose and not like a balloon had just detached itself. It was also a very calm evening and a strong wind would not cause these objects to move as they did.
I still remain perplexed. I know they were not conventional craft of any kind as they were absolutely silent.
Ball lightning?

I have also just looked at a u.k. ufo website and to my surprise there have been a number of similar sightings reported across England in November and December.
I also consider myself as very lucky to see such a sight as I could of just as easily stayed indoors.

I've never witnessed "ball lightning" before but it wasn't a stormy evening so I might rule that one out.

Actually, I’m really pleased other people saw them too. Those links are very good Mibs. They weren’t ball lightening or lanterns, and they were too big to be satellites.
*lightning.

Thank you very much Mibs. I know my Answerbank name used to be Luna-sea but I am sure on this particular occasion that I saw these strange orange lights that all my wits were in place.
I am also very glad they were witnessed by many others.
The lights I saw were low enough to hit with a tennis ball and racket. (Not that I wanted to of course). Just to give people an idea of how low they were in the sky.
Thanks again (Great Links) Wish I had a camera at the time.
