Bright orange lights appearing and disappearing over the ocean

My sister, my friend and myself were sitting on the beach enjoying the almost full moon over the ocean. I looked up and saw what I thought was Mars. I pointed it out to the others and thought nothing of it. Then it disappered. I figured it just went behind a cloud. A few minutes later we saw it reappear in a different location. That was when I noticed that Mars had been just off to the lower right of the moon. Sure enough, this object faded out just as the first one had. A few minutes again, and it shows up in another location. This happened for about fifteen minutes and then just seemed to stop. At one point two of the lights showed up right next to each other and again faded. We all know we saw something that was witnessed by a lot of people based on the other reports from the same area and time.
