Two Light Orbs Appear for 5 Minutes in Night Sky

Count: 2 Shape: round orbs Colors: both reddish/orangeish/ yellowish Sounds from Orbs: silent Light: the light glowed and emitted light rays from the center, and the center of the orb was the brightest part. The light did not twinkle, change color, or blink. The light faded and disappeared in plain sight after 5 minutes of viewing. The light did not reappear in any other direction even after watching for another 5 minutes. The fading was simple, as it was see through after it faded away into as the night sky.

Movement: The orbs did not make any quick movement from right, left, up or down. They simply traveled towards us in one direction.

Travel direction: they were traveling from the northwest direction coming towards us. They were separated by thumbs distance. When i extend my arm and raise my hand, use my thumb,and close 1 eye, the distance in between the two objects were a thumbs distance aka the distance between my wrist to my thumb nail.

Altitude:The 2 orbs were at different altitudes, one orb was about 45 degrees lower in altitude when compared to the higher altitude orb, and the lower altitude orb appeared to be furthest linear distance from us.

Linear distance from viewer: estimated to be between quarter mile to a mile.

Any obstructions: No. But there are 20' tall building and they did not obstruct the orbs. No trees were taller then the buildings.

Viewed: standing on the ground at around 100' elevation Weather: clear night no sky cover no clouds. I could see other stars in the sky.

Fireworks: In CA people celebrate the east coast new year at 9:00pm so i could hear fireworks but i could not see them. There was no smog in the air from any of the fireworks i was hearing. i couldn't smell any smoke from fireworks either.
