Orange light climbs 3 minutes straight up into night sky over Los Angeles

From my porch, my home is two hills East of the Hollywood sign, where I have a wide view over the Hollywood area. Was a slightly hazy night where only bright stars are barely visible. I looked West out toward the Children's Hospital a few miles away where somewhere beyond it I saw a small orange light low in the sky. Helicopters sometimes take off from the hospital roof, but this struck me as unusual because there were no blinking lights as most aircraft have. It also appeared to be climbing slowly upward at a very steep angle uncharacteristic of planes or choppers. After a minute I noticed a smaller blinking light, but after a few seconds the blinking light separated from the main light, trailed behind at a distance then blinked out. I called my girlfriend from inside the house to come see. We watched as this light continued to appear to climb straight up. After another minute, the light began to shimmer and then suddenly disappeared.
