star-like objects in changing formations

I was looking out from my driveway on a clear and starry night when I observed a formation of 4 more or less stationary bright orange objects hovering over the ocean south of my house. I pointed them out to my girlfriend, who was also in the driveway and then we observed them for several minutes. They moved into several different formations. One of the young people from the neighborhood was walking by while speaking with his girlfriend on a cell phone. The girlfriend was 5 miles north of our location. We pointed the objects out to him, and he described them to his girlfriend, who looked from her window and also saw them. The objects faded away gradually after a while and then 3 of them reappeared about 5 degrees west of the spot from which they had disappeared. The 3 objects affected several changing formations over a period of several minutes, faded away, and to our knowledge, have not re-appeared.
