15 Glowing orange orbs slowly travel across the los angeles sky then disapear

Saturday December 13th I was driving on the 101 heading east around the Balboa exit at 11:30pm when I noticed brake lights coming on in front of me. I slowed down to see why everyone was stopping and looked up to find 3 orange glowing orbs moving slowly across the sky. I quickly pull over to the side of the road to watch. The 3 orbs continue to move across the sky, hover in place then move again, as they get closer to the moon they begin to ascend until they are no longer visible. I look behind me to the area of the sky where they originated from and 3 more orbs come into view and do the same thing. Some dart in different directions but converge back with the others and ascend out of view. This happened 4 or 5 times and in total I saw around 15 objects in the sky over a period of about 20 minutes.

This occurred on the same night as a meteor shower and while this event was happening I was also seeing an occasional shooting star which was beautiful but looked nothing like what I was seeing.
