Two fireballs in the night sky in San Diego

Two circular round balls of fire. Perhaps two rockets that were launched at the same time? I checked the Vandenberg AFB website but it stated that there would be a launch On Saturday (the next day) close to Noon.

They were moving in tandem but weren't so close together. There was a high altitude Jet passing at the same time, much higher then the objects I saw were. I don't believe nor am I suggesting that it was connected. Just wanted to mention it in regards to the altitude. It lasted a few minutes. One of the lights disappeared, then the other a few seconds later. It seemed to be moving upward and westward. They were red or orange.

I am a Security Guard, don't drink, do drugs. I work at that site from 6pm til 2am, Friday through Sunday. I pay attention to detail because it is part of my job as a Guard. I wasn't going to report this but I haven't found anything to suggest that it was the launch of a rocket(s) from what I gather.
