Bright orange reddish lights flickering over lake Michigan ((Chicagoland area ))

While looking out my window facing south east, I've been able to see 2 brightly shining objects over Lake Michigan. I live in the city of Chicago near downtown on a floor higher than 15 in my building.

This past week, at least 3 out of the past 7 days, I've seen 2 bright orange reddish flickering lights appear, hover move ever so slightly then one or both dissappear only to reappear in another spot in the sky over a certain area of the water.

My guess is these objects can't be more than a couple thousand feet up in the air. These objects appear for 45 mins or so than they're gone.
