Reddish yellow orbs seen off the beach in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

My wife and I were sitting on the balcony of our condo adjacent to the oceanfront. While looking out over the beach in a southeasterly direction, we noticed 3 distinct reddish-yellow "orbs" or fireballs in the sky. These were in a distinct linear pattern with what appeared to be a few thousand feet of separation. We thought they could be aircraft traveling in an approach pattern, however, there was no movement off these lights. They simply appeared, remained stationary for a period of 30 seconds to 1 minute and then they disappeared.
