Multiple Orbs seen heading south along pacific ocean.

At approximately 10:15pm on August 23, 2014, my husband and I were docking our sailboat in Dana Point Harbor; our boat slips faces west towards the ocean. A friend of ours walked up and we were chatting for a bit and then he noticed something in the sky and pointed upward (west direction) and asked: "What is that?" We immediately looked up and saw approximately 25-30 orbs glowing white/orange orbs flying south along the coast. They were not planes or Chinese lanterns! Some of the orbs were darting around (going left and right), but still heading south. Then suddenly, one orb darted up towards the sky. It looked like a shooting star, but it was backwards, since it shot up towards the starts. Seconds later a second orb shot out in the same direction. The remaining orbs continued south and then split into two directions and alleviated into the sky so high they looked like stars in the distance. A few seconds later, a plane flew by. It was at the exact same elevation as the orbs originally were.

We were so flabbergasted and my husband immediately started shouting out to other boaters if they saw what we did. My husband found another witness who was also astonished and could not account for what had transpired. My husband asked for his name and number, but he refused.
