A slow moveing amber light that would increase and decrease brightness, sustaining its brightness in 5 second intervals. Turning at a 80 degree angle dropping then droppin an object of the same color that faded away. then the moveing object itself then faded away

Sunday Morning while with 7 other friends in the Parking lot of Vons (North Park). I looked up and to the north I saw an amber orange glowing object that was no more then 3 miles high slowly flying in our direction (South). As it flew slowly, amber light was always glowing, but would increase and decrease its intensity. It would hold its glow for 5 seconds then it would brighten and hold for 5 seconds then decrease again for 5 seconds. This continued for 2 minutes until the object itself made an 80 degree left turn towards the east over Santee. Less then a minute after it had turned the object had dropped some sort of light that looked like an ember of the the same color of the flying object itself, the object dropped quickly faded to nothing and the object moveing slowly increased its speed and the light was gone. This event had no sound at all..
