Location: Long Beach, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 1-2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
Small yellow orange red ball floating in sky for about 3 minutes; after, it disappeared.

I was sleeping, but my mom went out to get her phone in our car and she woke me and my sister up. It looked kinda like a fireball in the sky or a light, My mom and sister said it was bigger before I came out.

After I came out it sorta just looked like a small ball in the sky. An orange and reddish color. It started to blink, and then it just turned off completely. It was still visible afterwards but then it got lost in the clouds. I'm not sure if it's a UFO or a plane. But I looked up orange and yellow lights and the pictures that came up looked similar to what I saw.
