Location: South Pasadena, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Saw a very bright light which came towards me - grew brighter with a reddish aura. Stopped, and then moved away from me VERY fast and then just disappeared

This was a very very bright circular light seen in the morning sky, just a few minutes before sunrise. It was a beautiful clear morning and they sky was unusually light. The brightness caught my eye as I was driving. At first I thought it was a helicopter but the light then got much more intense with a reddish glow around it. It then seemed to move backwards away from me extremely fast and then completely vanished. I knew it could not be a helicopter because you don't see the helicopter headlight if it is moving away from you, and it moved way too fast.
