multiple amber orbs observed over the ocean night sky for 2 straight nights in Holden beach ,NC

We were on the deck watching the stars over the ocean sky when we all saw a very large bright amber sphere which would light up and go out slowly. When next we saw it it would be in a different location in the sky. Each time it would appear it would last a different amount of time. Several times we saw 2 appear at the same time and then they broke up into smaller spheres in a sparkle pattern and moved across the sky. We observed these objects for 2 different nights and 8-10 people saw them with us. They always appeared after dark over the ocean in a southern direction. The first night we probably observed at least 30 times these spheres of amber light and sparkles. My husband, who is an engineer, observed them with binoculars and stated they appeared to be a line of lights rather than a single orb.
