Saw 5 orange lights in the sky viewed them for awhile they formed the big dipper then dimmed out

Was driving south on Alpine Road when I happened to look out toward the east and saw five very bright orange lights in the sky. I knew immediately that they were out of place and were acting in a way that there was no label that I could put on them from previous experiences. My daughter and I pulled into the parking lot where we were going and to my amazement they formed the big dipper one star short. Then they started to dissapear one at a time slowly then there was only one left. I looked in the paper but could find no accounts and it was a full week before accounts began to appear along with someone in So.Belot who has a video tape. A stream seem to come down from one object
