Orange lights near downtown

I was driving northbound on highway 99 towards downtown Sacramento at about 5:55 pm on Saturday January 12th. There was some cloud cover and could not see any stars.

I noticed the lights directly in front of my car there were 2 at about 20-25 degrees above the horizon and a third a little farther away at between 15 degrees above horizon.

The lights seemed odd to me as there were no FAA lights. They alternated red and orange. The lights seemed to be moving southbound in my direction. Two of them went directly over my car, the other was to my right (east) of my car. The one to the right was the brightest of the three.

I did not know if there was any noise as I was in my car with the windows up. There was also some cloud cover, and the lights were below the clouds.

I would be willing to speak to an investigator, if needed.
