Orange pulsating light over the Farmers Market in Los Angeles

Noticed a pulsating orange thing (like a torch high up) in the sky moving in a Northwestern direction at a seemingly fast pace that slowed down considerably to a slow pace. While it slowed down, the brightness of the object diminished till it came to a complete stop.

At that point the bright orange glow faded till it became a white dot that all of us saw. It remained in the sky, stationary, for about two minutes till it continued to fade even more. Then before it faded completely it started to move in a Northeasterly direction at a fast pace and disappeared behind a cloud (one of about three in the sky at that time).

This sighting happened at the Farmers Market here in Los Angeles on a Saturday night. It was busy and I know many people witnessed the event. I also work at the Market and this is the second sighting I've had in about four months.
