V shape dim orange "lights" moving fast and silent then faded into night sky

OK this is the second time I am posting.

Searched through your sighting database and found first posting of my sighting on 10/31/10 at 19:30 in Northridge, CA, posted on 11/21/10 I had described as “rounded “boomerang” shape of about seven or nine dark circles”.

This time I was up early around 5 AM on morning of 10/21/11 so I grabbed a cup of coffee and went in backyard to watch the meteor shower from Halley’s debri. Was an absolutely clear sky and I did see a couple good meteors and several weaker ones. Also saw a couple satellites pass. Was actually watching one of these when something else caught my eye. At first is seemed like a very dim and tight cluster of stars, like looking momentarily at the little dipper. And then I realized it was moving. It was a V shape with very dim “Burnt orange’” colored round objects, I can’t say lights, or globes, or even circles because I just couldn’t see that kind of detail. It moved from the Northwest and to Southeast di! rection. This time I really focused on it until it just got so faint it “disappeared”. Like last time it did not travel so far from sight that it just got so small or distant that I could no longer see it, it just kind of faded into the night sky. By this I guess I mean the object was so dark and dim that it was hard to see in the first place, as it moved away it got dimmer and until it was no longer distinguishable from the dark of the sky. It was so quiet out I could hear the leaves rustling from a very light breeze. This thing did not make a sound. Description: V shape, point of V was the “front” of the object, or at least pointing in the direction it was moving. The point was one of five orange “lights” for lack of better description, the left side of V was three more orange lights, right side was one more orange light, I assumed it could have been at an angle where more lights might have been on the right side I could not see. Totally estimating/guessing elevation of ! around 1000 feet? Speed again guessing 50 to 70 mph. Seemed to! glide o r float but pretty fast, and again dead quiet. Sighting location was the same as last time, Northridge, CA, just above the 118 Freeway, my backyard which is south facing. Seriously have no idea what this was, but it definitely seemed to me to be some sort of propelled object, not balloons, not a plane or helicopter. Again no idea what it was, but this time I know I saw it.
