Red, hovering, at times pulsating light seen above Pacific Beach area of San Diego, CA

Around 9:30 pm my family and I saw a very interesting non-flashing red light moving very slowly in the sky just north of us. It was definetly not aircraft of any kind we were familular with. There were several occasions wher this "thing" would stop, unlike anything we had ever seen. As the UFO moved south it stopped for a period of about 45-60 seconds, compleatly hovering. Periodically, the craft would almost flash and pulsate. There seemed to be no rhyme or reason. As we looked we saw what looked like lights on the side of this craft. They resembled beams coming from all around circle. At this time there was no other aircraft in the sky! As this whole incident happend we saw no airplanes at all! Being so close to Linburgh Field we always have airtraffic. There were none during this whole episode until after the craft was gone and we, within ten minutes saw several airplanes landing and taking off.This was no airplane! We all were very intersted at this time and as the craft moved north once again, it seemed to stop almost directly above us and with a very bright, very dramatic explosion the crafts former red (unblinking) lights transformed into white light and with a blink of the eye that red hovering spot we had been witnessing had vanished. There after we saw no evidence of this incident. That is of course exept for the digital camcorder recording that we have. Please share with my family and I any information on what we have witnessed tonight. It has left us all with many theories.What the hell did we see tonight?
