One orange light split into two lights over the ocean .

The observers are 2 female ages, 22 and 24. We were sitting on the beach looking over the ocean. Somewhere between 2-4 miles out over the ocean at about low cloud level; we saw a light. The light started as one point in the sky and immediately split into two lights. They went horizontally away from eachother. The light that went to the right faded first. Immediately after the light to the left faded in the same fashion. The lights that we saw were an orange color.
