Shape: Fireball
Duration:20 minutes
Bight red light hovering for about 20 minutes then disappearing, reapearing as a white flash, spiltting into 4 faint objects and gone.

Was eating on porch of Nicks in Pacific Beach, CA and saw a unusual reddish-pinkish light (to the south-east) that stayed in basically the same spot for about 15 minutes. It drifted across the sky (about an arm's length distance) and sat in the same spot for about 5 more minutes. All of a sudden it started to dim and come back brighter, then about 2 minutes later it went dark all together, came back instantly with a bright white flash and then disappeared again leaving 4 small "dusty" objects that also disappeared within 1-2 seconds. Then there was no trace of any lights at all.
