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 obseved 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. roger.
