The UFOs in this video attempts to move into formation as they first make a triangle and then a rectangle. This denotes intelligence. Had they been Chinese lanterns, they would be flying one by one in a long line in the sky. I don't see that here. Also Chinese lanterns die in 2-4 minutes. The fact the eyewitness says they stopped above his home for 20+ seconds shows that these were intelligently controlled craft.

My wife and I were sitting out on our deck around 11PM on August 27, 2016. We noticed a group of orange, glowing orbs from the northeast about 10 feet above the house across the street. They floated slowly and silently towards our direction. We noticed them because we were seated facing north, so you couldn't miss them unless you were asleep. We both observed these object with a skeptics eye at first, but it was unlike anything we had ever seen before. They made absolutely no noise. There was no frame to them (like a Chinese lantern). We saw them from the side and from directly underneath. I rushed into the house, grabbed my camera and told my daughter to come see these objects. I exited our deck into the front yard and started filming. There was 5 of them. They were hovering just above the power lines. The objects were in a line, one behind the other. As they reached our house they moved into a circular formation. They hovered above our house for about 20-30 seconds before going back into a linear formation and moving on towards the southwest. My wife then noticed that a sixth orb was hovering just 5 or so feet above our house as if it was curious of us. That's when my dog started to bark at the object. It hovered over us for about 10 seconds before joining the other 5 orbs. As they all floated away in the distance, they seemed to just disappeared. There was no wind. There was no noise. They were always at least 15-40 feet away from us until they finally floated off and disappeared in the distance.
