3 Lights along Los Angeles Coastline

Hi, at approximately 8 pm my wife and I were looking west at the sunset over the ocean, standing on Redondo Beach, CA. We noticed after the sun went down, three distance bright orange oblong shapes in the sky.

This was very distant, miles away, over the mountain coast past Malibu, looking northwest. These blips slowly moved individually at approximately 45 degrees, as if they were moving away from us possibly and across the sky, but not in formation. One moved towards the earth and two slowly up and away.

We assumed because of the slightly orange sunset sky, that they were orange because of reflecting the sunset, so they could have been silver or reflective in some way. Nearer to us, Planes were taking off from Lax, moving east to west across the sky lifting off, and they were consistently silhouetted against the orange sky, without their lights on.

So to us, whatever was in the distance was very orange (reflective possibly). As they began to become less visible, assuming distance, one object suddenly appeared as a very brilliant light for about 3 to 5 seconds and disappeared.
