Characteristics: Lights on object

At 11:00 pm I was with a group at an outdoor cinema on Capitol Hill. I noticed three reddish orange orbs of light moving south from over lake Washington towards Renton. What was strange is that they all had one pulsating light and it was large and slightly diffused. Over the course of the evening I had noticed numerous typical plane and helicopter lights passing over downtown. They all had a series of different fine pinpoint colored lights flashing such as red with flashing white, green etc.

The three lights silently passed by and headed south. Strangely there were not fading lower into the horizon, as you would expect. Other aircraft with blinking green/white lights was following the horizon and fading into the lower atmosphere. These crafts were flying a direct line of site from their current altitude to about 40-50 degrees into the sky. This means they were not flying in parallel to the ground but descending up. I quickly pointed this out to the group I was with and they immediately noticed they were not typical aircraft. At that point they began to quickly disappear into the sky as if they were leaving the atmosphere. About a minute later three more red/orange orbs appeared on almost the same path. Their characteristics were similar but the third light seemed to quickly speed up before vanishing.

The weather that night was crystal clear. The moon was out stars were visible. There were no smoke or vapor trails behind the lights. They moved way to fast to be flairs. They were not moving into the horizon like a typical craft but were disappearing into the upper atmosphere. They did not have a series of flashing lights but a slightly pulsating light with a reddish orange glow. This was definitely not like any craft I have seen before. The details were very similar to other events posted here as recently as June and July 2013.
