Location: San Diego, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Red light in the sky, hovering no motion in any direction. Blinked white light and them seemed to grow brighter and explode.

At the beach at Crown Point by Sea World in San Diego. Teenager pointed out red light stationary in the sky directly over us. Aircraft were taking off from Lindbergh so we knew this was stationary not a moving aircraft. This was not a Helicopter, We flashed our flash light at the red light. It responded back with a white blink which left a halo effect of white light with the red light in the middle. The white light went out and then flashed again without any further blink from our flash light. The white light then appeared to grow and it seemed as though the object exploded. I read the UFO sighting from San Diego Search and Rescue from July. This episode seems to be a mirror image of what was reported at that time. We tried to determine if this was a Laser being fired from one of the local military installations but could not ascertain any other light beams. This was a single red light without any other objects near it.

((NUFORC Note: We have received several similar reports from the San Diego area. The first recent sighting of a red light in that city was reported on July 25th, and it was covered by the local television news. PD))
