Pulsating light in Murrieta with jet contrail intercepting

On 01-28-07 at approximately 1830 hrs., a family member noticed a pulsating light in the sky above my home in Murrieta, Ca. (Riverside County).

The rest of the family including myself were summoned outside. The weather was less then partly cloudy with an almost invisible layer of patchy mist or fog closer to the ground.

About 20 degrees south of the full moon, I noticed a pulsating white light. About one pulse every ten seconds. It appeared to be in a vertical rotation, which is why I initially thought it was the beacon from nearby French Valley Airport.

But that beacon rotates horizontally, and the light appeared to be coming from above the strand of clouds which rolled past. From above the cloud cover downward.

The pulses were more intense from a direction above the clouds and to the south (Away from the moon.).

We watched this light for about 15 minutes, then it stopped.

I never saw what was making the pulses of light. After going inside, we came back out about 5 minutes later to send the family off and now noticed one contrail in the moonlight (35,000 ft.??) going from the N/E to the S/E and intersecting the same spot we saw the prior pulses of light.

I had not seen th light again.
