Driving to the store it was dusk and my daughter asked me what the orange ball was. I dismissed it as an airplane until I saw it with two others. I stopped to see if I could hear any noise. They disappeared behind the trees. Then three more came. I was watching from outside my van parked on the side of the road. I then proceed to drive to the store when one more came along by itself. I saw it early so I stopped and watched it on the same path as the other six. We live in a rural area. My daughter was afraid because I stopped. I felt no threat. I flew commercially for 10 years and could not identify these flying objects as aircraft. I thought they could be some weird candle driven balloon but they moved too fast and the first three were flying in formation of a triangle. Same as the next three. They were low enough that I could see the clouds behind them. I have no explanation for what I saw.
