Hovering Red Orbs over the Newport Beach, CA peninsula

I viewed outside my window reddish orange orbs over the coast. I see plenty of planes flying into John Wayne Airport and plenty of helicopters flying over the peninsula. These were neither types of craft. There were no blinking lights whatsoever. They we're flying a little higher than helicopters fly and hovered for the most part. I saw two groups of two. The first set hovered for a while then one disappeared while the other remained. After about 4 minutes, it headed up and to the north out of site. The second set was basically the same in that they hovered and stayed still for about 4 minutes. One of them went up higher into the sky after about 2 minutes and while it was visible to the naked eye, my phone video recorder could no longer pick it up. The 2nd one disappeared after about 4 - 5 minutes. At one point I put down my iPhone and zeroed in with binoculars that I have. I could not make out any type of metal or material on the craft. It seemed to be comprised of multiple lights of the same size and luminosity. This is the 3rd time I've spotted these craft over the same area of sky outside my window. I have never seen them any where else.
