Orange light slowly moving through sky then disappearing

Saw an orange glowing light in the sky northeast of Long Beach. Light appeared to move upward (relatively from observing position) then dim and slowly move downward.

Eventually disappeared, followed by another light that had the same pattern.

Was much brighter than other aircraft in the sky (helicopters and planes).

Most closely resembled a spotlight shining down or an orange flare.
