Bright orange object hovering over incoming air traffic.

I was taking out some trash at night when I looked to the eastern sky (towards the Inland Empire) and observed an unusual orange ball of light hovering in a stationary position high above incoming air traffic headed towards LAX.

About 15 seconds after, this orange ball of light slowly begins to ascend to a greater altitude then stops to a still position for 20 seconds(like a bright star in the sky), then the object slowly comes back down to its original position (from when I first noticed it), all of a sudden this orange light gets brighter then dims down to a deep red color then turns black and disappears from the night sky.
