Group Of Orange Red Lights Over Nanaimo British Columbia

Date:  November 28, 2011
Time:  7:30 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of Objects: 3
Shape of Objects: Spherical.
Full Description of Event/Sighting: My sighting began just after picking up a new printer at the local Staples in Nanaimo. I had just begun to pull out of the parking lot when I noticed due south, just behind and above the Home Depot, a group of red/orange lights.
It was odd enough for me to pull over and attempt to catch the sighting on my phone.

I stepped out of the van and as I filmed I witnessed 3, bright orange red spheres at roughly a forearms distance apart, slowly ascend from roughly the horizon and into the cloud bank.
They moved at the same rate of speed at a 80 degree angle upwards. A strong easterly wind was blowing but the lights moved very slowly westerly.

The color was the most striking part. It was an even light (no flickering) and it had a very warm reddish/orange glow which frankly looked out of place in the night sky. At one time it appeared that each individual light may have been comprised of 3 interconnected spheres.

I would very much like to know if anything was happening in that area (anything involving Chinese lanterns?). It was definitely not standard air traffic and no landing or identifier lights were visible.
The objects themselves seemed substantial enough that they may have posed a flight risk to local air traffic in that area.

Someone else must have seen this. It was happening during a busy seasonal shopping time.

Thanks for listening!
