Red orbs crossing horizon.

Burbank, CA. On January 29, 2016, between 21:27 and 21:36 PST, ten solid, unblinking, red-orange orbs, about three times larger and twice as bright as Venus, some with vertical lines approximately one orb diameter (possible optical illusion), were observed by self and adult son crossing 45 to 90 degrees across horizon becoming visible at ~150 degrees SSE through between 210 and 280 degrees SSW at approximately 30 degrees above horizon with slight increase in elevation during travel.

Event may have begun before I noticed. All appeared to originate from same point in SE and each disappeared from view at different points. Fade out took between one and five seconds. Earlier orbs appeared to travel greater distance while later ones disappeared from view after covering shorter path. Each remained visible for over a minute and three to four were visible at a time.

No frame of reference to determine velocity or range.

I have over 30 years USAF and these did not resemble any rocket/missile or afterburner that I have seen.
