Orange Orbs or Binary Pair + Fake Plane over SLC

Similar lights to the 03/06/15 report.

I noticed an orange light hovering over SLC to my south, similar to the ones I saw previously. I was close to where I saw the previously mentioned formation and so was it. I decided to let it be, as it wasn't moving, and wasn't really behaving all that interestingly.

I came back to my previous line of sight after about 5 minutes and it was still there, and was in the process of being joined by a second, dimmer, orangish light from the southwest, slightly higher than it. They formed a binary pair for roughly 45 seconds, the new light making a roughly 15 degree rotation in a clockwise northeastern motion around the first. The new light then proceeded to reverse that motion halfway, and made a course change toward the west. It lazily drifted out of sight behind a building, while the original continued to hover in it's spot.

After roughly a minute, the original made a sudden, similarly slow shift to the west and followed the 2nd's path. A plane was heading to the east at this point, it appeared to be south of the object. The orange object produced a small orange flicking light that would blink almost white similarly to the navigation lights of the plane headed against it's course, assuming a fake plane form. It finally was lost behind the same building as the light that joined it before.

These lights appeared to be the same type of orange orb seen on 03/06/15. I will try to capture video the next time I see these orbs, as this is the 2nd time I've seen something that fit this description that has behaved notably. I've seen similar looking lights multiple times since my previous and convincing encounter. However, most of the time they just hover for a bit before either disappearing or I am drawn away from watching them. I saw a similar looking light on 04/03/15 from between some buildings but trees obscured what I was looking at so I didn't report it. I did however capture some very poor quality video of that sighting that is unfortunately only proof that there was a light in the distance.
