Orange spheres in sky New Year's Eve, San Diego, CA

My husband and I were in San Diego Gaslamp Quarter for New Year's Eve. We returned to our hotel around 1am and my husband was on the balcony smoking. He called me out to look at something unusual. I saw 6 or so orange orbs in the sky. They were a unique color and at first didn't look like anything unusual until they started moving. It was smooth but erratic and unlike any conventional flying machinery. They would speed up and slow, turn corners quickly. One appeared to have an even smaller orb orbiting it as it moved. My husband said he saw a few like that but I only clearly saw the one. There was also an airplane trail of clouds and the orbs clearly were under those clouds, so closer to the ground than an airplane.

I watched for about 2 minutes or so but my husband followed them for about 20 minutes. Then they disappeared.
