Moving orange lights and a bright flashing light very close to ground.

We were standing on the top floor of our hotel balcony when we noticed a bunch of orange lights in the distant sky switching places, disappearing, and reappearing in different spots. One which we had kept our eye on for about an hour started floating slowly to the west. It changed pace, stopped, then started coming our way. It came toward us rapidly, flying above out balcony, creating wind in the trees and the pool. My boyfriend decided to go out to the car to get our camera when I heard him yell for me. I went out back and saw a big bright flashing white light on top of the trees across the street. The light lit up the trees, the street, and the house next door. The light got dimmer, then brighter again, and went on for about 45 minutes. It disappeared out of no where.
