Bright light(s) witnessed in Carlsbad on 2/2/09

I spotted a very bright orange/yellow light in the evening sky just north of Carlsbad. I couldn't tell how far away it was, only that it was large enough to know it wasn't a star. I watched it for about 20 seconds then I went inside to get my husband. It took me about 10 seconds to get back outside, and it was gone. I waited for a couple of minutes, then I saw it again. It was in the exact same spot. I called out for my husband again but then it slowly disappeared behind the mountains. I waited again then I saw 2 lights appear out of nowhere. The larger light was there and a new, smaller light. The smaller light began to disappear, but the larger light stayed in its position. I called out for my husband again and he finally made it outside in time to witness the light. I asked him what it was, and he said he didn't know. I asked him to get my cell phone so I could record it. The light then slowly began to dim and finally went out. It didn't go behind the mountains. The light just started to dim and then disappeared. I was unable to catch the light on my cell phone. After it disappeared, I didn't see it again. I came directly inside and got on the internet to see if anyone else had reported it.
