Two Orange Spheres moments apart, followed by smaller moving star like object, which became two lights moving together from another dir

Went outside to see if air had gotten cooler. Felt good, was standing outside when noticed a low flying, largish bright orange sphere in horizon. Kept staring at it as it looked so "wrong". I was waiting for the light to blink like a plane. But this never happened. It continued to move slowly, then gradually seemed to shrink and disappear.

Moments later there was another of the same sort. This one did not disappear, just gradually went out of sight?(trees and horizon) This was followed by yet ANOTHER oddity though from a different direction.

Looked like one of those small moving stars. Only as it got overhead another light came on directly on the side of it. Like two tiny ones moving together, or lights on the same object? Again the lights did not blink like a plane. Was flying low and silent in the horizon. Thought I saw the outline of metal around the lights but I am not sure.

Very strange!
