Orange looking fireballs floating, dimming and brightening, and making circular motions around each other before vanishing into the sky

This summer I was at a campground called Hermit Island. This campground is surrounded by beaches. One night around 10:pm, a bunch of my friends and I decided to go down to a beach and star gaze for a bit.

As were we're looking into the star filled sky, all of a sudden two huge floating objects appeared out of nowhere in the sky. At first, the looked like two fireballs just floating in the sky. They were a orange reddish color. As we watched them, they would get really dim, almost to the point where you couldn't see them, and then they would get really bright.

After about 1 minute of watching this, they started to move rather than float in one spot. They moved in two perfect circles around each other still getting dimming and brightening. As they made the second circular motion, they got as bright as they had ever been and vanished in a blink of an eye into the dark sky without a sound.
