Two orange lights in the sky to the south of Charlotte, NC

There were two orange lights in the sky to the south of where I was standing. One was hovering, apparently not moving. When I first saw the lights, the one on the right seemed to be an elongated shape with multiple lights, and then a more compact shape. The light to the left moved, varied in intensity, changed color, and seemed to fade in and out. The other did not appear to move. They both went away after a while—I did not see them leave the area. Planes flew over the whole time I was watching, and I heard jets at one point. I am not sure how long the lights were in the sky before I saw them. Nothing was reported on Flight Aware. Helicopters and drones could both hover, but these seemed too large and higher up than either of those would be.
