Formations of lights over the ocean in Carlsbad (San Diego county)

Several coworkers and I saw numerous lights out over the ocean. The lights were disappearing and reappearing, and changing formations. The lights were slightly orange/yellow color. The lights looked like they could be Chinese lanterns, but they were first lighting up high in the sky. They also looked like flares, however they seemed to be maintaining altitude and even climbing slightly. Also, there was barely any lateral movement, even though a windstorm was occurring. Many people should have witnessed this, due to the length of time it occured and position off the coast of a busy area. We witnessed several pedestrians watching the lights from an overlook area just down the street.
