Triangular shaped dark orange light. Very large in the direction of the ocean.

While jogging around 9:20 PM something caught my eye in the direction of the Ocean (I was about 5 miles inland. I focused on what at first I thought had to be an airplane but it definitely was not. It was large and probably over the ocean, but it appeared to have 2 "ribbon" like curved lights, almost like a belt but not quite. The shape was Triangular but not a "steep triangle". It was a dark orange light, and lit up for a half second and then the light faded very quickly. I stopped dead in my tracks and it did it again, same spot -same lights. It almost appeared as if something was attempting to "power up" and the lights came on very briefly and then faded very quickly. I took out my phone, hoping to get a chance to film it, but it never re-appeared. Nothing, just dead silence. I've never seen anything like it...It was very strange.
