Red floating lights

Throughout my life I have experienced some really strange and unbelievable things but none of them gave me the feeling that I have right now. It was 11:01 pm when the power went out just briefly. 11:03 it happened for the second time.

This time I look immediately outside towards the streets and neighbors. Everywhere seemed to be just fine but I was still dark. Power came back on.

11:06 third time, this time was different.
Everyone else had lights so it seemed as I looked out the windows and then the coldest chill I have ever had in my life. Every hair on my body stood straight, goosebumps from the feet up and a horrible feeling of no longer being alone.

My son and wife are asleep upstairs. I herd nothing but silence but I turned around anyway to see something I have never witnessed before. 4-6 little red glowing balls or orbs or well, I really down know. They were just floating there. I'm getting the coldest chills sitting here as I am typing this. Out of thin air they were gone.

I sat back down and tried to process what I had just seen and out of the corner of my left eye.. They were maybe 5-6feet away from me and then vanished again. This time I didn't sit. I ran to where I am now. I woke my son up and took him into my wife and I bedroom and locked the door. Listening and searching to hopefully get an answer and feel some comfort.

That's how I got here. Please someone tell me What just happened.

First thought is an entity sucking energy (electrical and environmental).   Papameter: 75% Paranormal      25% Hoax or all natural explanation

@J of Canada - get a nic and come on in! the water's fine I can't say what you saw but it is a good story. there is an outside chance of ball lightning but several orbs...? not sure.  Orbs can be a paranormal entity but it is so hard to say here. Give us some dimensions to work with. what shade of red? Did they change colors? how close were they to each other? did they maintain perfect distance from each other? how fast did they move and in what directions? interesting stuff

All I know is the colour red in the natural world means danger or dangerous.

Could of been the result of a transformer burning out. Dripping flaming oil and plastic.

Could it have been an after image of some sort from the lights going out? Were you watching TV, your cell phone/tablet, or on the computer? An image may have been in your eyes similar to staring at something for a minute & turning off the lights or even just closing your eyes. You can still see the image until it just goes away.
