Flashing Lights and Orange Orbs

I was sitting on the porch smoking a cigarette with some friends and I noticed these long series of flashing lights, didn't look like airplanes more like distant stars. I pointed them out and we watched their speed variations and odd maneuvering.

I noticed two of them flare up into orange balls of pulsating light. Then they started going behind some more houses.

I walked down to the beach to keep an eye on them. Once they were over the ocean, They circled each other and rotated, I saw on at least 4-5 occasions them flare up into orange balls again.

These were not flares, and I have no clue what they were.

Its a mostly clear night, no clouds.

About 20 min after, Saw two more sets of flashing lights but no orange orbs, here is the wildest thing.

One came down like a shooting star and started blinking, since I've seen another 'shooting star' but no lights with it. Moving at a rate too wild and fast for an airplane
