Bright light, blinking off West Palm Beach, FL coast - 23.12 hous on 24 September 2000

At approx. 23.12 h (-05 GMT) while traveling south on US 1, I was 1.5 miles sout of the center of the city of West Palm Beach I saw in the eastern sky an odd blinking light. I turned left and proceeded to the banks of the Indian River (the Intercoastal Waterway) the light was VERY bright and seemed about 1.5 - 2 miles off the coast over the Atlantic Ocean. The light would stay 'on' for about 3 seconds and off for 1 - 1.5 second. The light was easily ten times brighter than a street lamp, easily. The blinking began to fade at approx 23.15 and faded to black.
