Bright Orange Light moving in many directions over 210 Fwy.

I am a law enforcement officer and was leaving for work today, heading East on the 210 Fwy toward San Bernardino. I noticed a bright orange light appear in the distance. I estimated it to be at least 10 miles away and about 20-30 degrees from the horizon. The light was stationary for a short time. I watched the light thinking it was an aircraft turning on his landing lights. Then at that moment it began to move in irregular directions at extremely fast speed. I new at that time it was not a conventional aircraft or any type of drone because of the height, distance, and speed. It was something I've never seen before. The orange light returned to its original position and dimmed out. I pulled my phone out to record the event if it happened again and unfortunately it never appeared again. I was very excited to see such an event as this. There were many cars on the freeway at the time and must have had numerous witnesses.
