A fast moving light is observed over the ocean

I was standing on Hilton Head Island Beach looking out over the ocean when I saw a distinctive light making strange and extremely speedy maneuvers in the sky. The light seemed to change color from green to white and zipped high in the sky after hovering several miles out above the sea.

A second person who happened to be on the beach witnessed this strange movement. There were shrimp boats on the horizon that identified where the sea ended and the night sky began. It was obvious that this craft was in the air. I decided to walk to the water's edge and when I did the light seemed to move toward me and shined a spotlight on me that was nearly translucent and appeared more like a beam of moon light.

Eventually the light stopped moving around in the sky and disappeared.
