Duration:1.5 hrs
U.F.O. circle-shaped, w/ V at top white/reddish color with brilliance and movement (as if pulled by gravity)

White-reddish circular object with wide V to the top in white, with brilliance. Black sky with many stars. Crystal-clear view of object, that appeared to move smoothly, not fast, to various positions,couldn't predict what movement it would go. I was making my security rounds and the lights color is what made me look. I observed first stationary-type object but immediately it begun to move. It was easy to see the movementswhen I focused either side of object. This U.F.O. was over ocean water, appeared good distance from coast, approximately 1/2 mile off shore at probably a 90 degree angle, I had to look directly up, looking out at the ocean, to make a visual.

I took my flashlight and clicked it of and on slowly and then rapidly. It seems as though the object would move, after the flashing of the light, I sent out to it. It appeared it was observing what I was doing. I originally observed the object for half an hour, then I reported the sighting to local police.

A police officer came to my location and immediately saw the object. we walked to a darkened area of the inn and observed the U.F.O. moving and casting the white/reddish colors. He stated he would contact F.A.A. for any air traffic. The only air traffic was a plane I observed at 3:15a.m. The police officer said he would go to the station for binoculors and try to observe object at a beach a couple miles down, because he said the object looked as if it was closer to that particular beach, in other words a better view. I contacted the night auditor and he saw the object. We watched it and it make movements.I will look for the craft tonight, at approximately 1:30a.m. It may return or it may not. All I know is I observed and had witnesses observe a U.F.O.
