Location: Pompano Beach, FL
Shape: Light
Duration:15 Minutes
Small light similar to a star flashed twice and appeared to move in an erratic pattern.

I was standing on the beach with my partner eating ice cream that we had just purchased from a shop 1/2 block from the sand. I first noticed a dot of light in the eastern sky about 45 degress above the ocean. It looked like a star but began to slowly move further east, I then thought it was an airplane and pointed out to my witness. We both agreed that it was to high and distant to be a plane, no sooner dio=d we boith focus on the light and it flashed. The flash was triple the original lights size and lasted just a milli second. We continued to watch the light and it seemed to dance around and flashed again one more time. At a much lower altitude about 20 degress in the same eastern sky we observed airplanes on their approach to the Miami and Ft. Lauderdale airports. Comparing the two, it was evident that the first light we saw just a few minutes prior was not a plane. We continued to watch the small dot of light and observed anotherlight, similar to a star moving from the north towards the first light, my first assumption was it was an airplane. I was wrong because the light moved behind an area of clouds and never re-emerged.
