Orange ball of light flickers and disappears over Richmond, VA

A few weeks ago (from August 27) my boyfriend and I, saw 3 orange orbs of light in the sky. They were all heading south east, and rapidly changed direction heading northwest. They moved slowly, and there were no blinking lights indicating human aircraft. We tried to follow them, but eventually lost sight because of tree lines. Today (August 27) we saw the same ball of orange light. It was only one this time. We were observing to see if it was the same thing. We stopped our car to look more carefully when we saw the ball of orange light flicker, as if it were a light bulb. It wasn't a blink with any kind of rhythm. It flickered about 3 times. On the third flicker, it disappeared completely. It was too low in the sky to be covered by clouds. There were no trees or high buildings for it to go behind in the area. It didn't fade away, it simply flickered and disappeared.
