bright white/yellow/red circle of light, moving towards me, then just "blinked out"

I went to close my back sliding door and curtains. As I approached the window a sudden flash of light caught my attention. As I looked out towards the woods, I saw a perfect circle of concentrated bright light (just slight glow or haze on "edges") The size at this time was about pea size. I was in awe and thinking "what the heck is this..if it is a plane in trouble, it will hit our house too"....the bright circle of condensed light grew larger and appeared to be approaching me in a direct line, or direct "hit"...the size grew almost twice it's size before just "blinking out". The color of light was a mix of "white hot" white...almost a blue/white, some yellow and some orangish/red combination...all mixed together. My back yard adjoins a meadow and spans about 1 1/2 acres to a wooded area and "the world's largest" sandstone quarries. No other houses or people in this area.(behind us) I do not know how far away it was, as this happened so quickly and it was dark outside, but the sky still had a blue tinge. The next morning I looked out at the area and thought that perhaps this light was about 1 acre away and less than twice the height of the tree tops. This area is still "country", and still a village, even though it has developed a bit since my child hood. Growing up in this area, I have experienced and witnessed many strange "encounters", sometimes alone, sometimes with people. I also noticed that at this time, I heard dogs barking in the woods. I had an uneasy feeling that it "blinked out" when it "saw" me.
