Red light in sky dropping flares

I was driving home from work approx at 11:55 pm on the 91 fwy westbound and as I was exiting the fwy to my left I noticed a red light in the sky. I thought it was a airplane or a helicopter. It was distant, like a few cities away.

As I was pulling into my house I noticed it much more brighter. I live in Anaheim and this light had to be hoovering over Orange, Santa Ana area. I kept staring at it because it was still so at first I thought it was a star but too red to be a star so then I thought it was a helicopter and red lights were on.

Then I was getting off the car, still looking at it and I then seen something that looked like red flares dropping down from it.

I stayed frozen looking at it and the first thought that came to me is that its some type of aircraft with a bomb or something. I started shaking cause I was so scared but came in my house and told my 12 yr daughter to come outside with me, that I wanted her to see something in the sky.

She rushed outside with me and it was no longer there. I looked all around in the sky but there was nothing that looked like what I seen. I would say that the duration since the time I noticed it and the last I saw it was about 3 minutes.
