sighted an orange ball moving all over the sky near the moon over ocean

I heard on the artbell show that a police officer in the Los Angeles coastal area flying in a helicopter had an encounter with an orange object. One night about a week ago while driving home from work I saw this same object in the north western sky while northbound on I-5, It was moving almost as a helicopter would but it was orange with no other color lights that I could see. It was only a mile or two off of the coast of north San Diego County and I thought it was a planet at first but the orange object was circling in the sky over a distance of several miles perhaps, I have 20-15 vision with both eyes and I had my window open and saw it clearly. I waved to it and said to the object "hey fellars come on down" then I got a strange feeling as if the occupants heard me and were amused
