Red-orange, round objects appearing with one that had three lights, and they vanished after 20-30 seconds after each time.

My sister and I were sitting out on our porch, looking at the stars and waiting for the ISS to fly over, when I noticed 2 orange-red glowing orbs in the sky to the right of Mars. They glowed for just a few seconds and then faded out. We called our mom outside to come and watch for them to show up again. It was about 10-15 minutes later that they showed up again further to the left of where we had previously seen them. It was just 2 that time also. And after 5-10 more minutes, 3 of the orbs of light in a cluster and 2 single ones in separate areas appeared and faded out and then they came back in separate areas of the sky. The 3 lights that were together seemed as if it was part of one "craft." That was our last sighting of them and they seemed to be further out above the ocean than the first sightings. I was able to look at them two different times through binoculars and the objects looked about as big as Mars, but seemed to glow more rather than being solid form. It looked like the center was red with an orange glow around it. I honestly have never seen anything like this and have never really been a big believer in UFOs, but now I think I've changed my mind. When I first saw the lights appear, my mind didn't go to a drone, airplane, or anything of the sort. I couldn't think of anything that the lights could be. So, I know it has to be something other than normal aircraft.
