Mysterious light observed near Vandenberg AFB

My co-worker and I were southbound on the 101 and we both noticed a shimmer of light approximately 30 degrees off of the southern horizon. Neither of us responded, believing it to be a reflection of a distant aircraft. Until it grew in intensity and it changed its shape; now an elongated diamond-shape. This 'flare' lasted about 15 seconds and gradually faded, the entire time holding its position.

After 3 minutes the light abruptly dropped about 10 degrees downward and slowly fade out. The interesting thing was that we knew our heading and we knew that due south, precisely where this mysterious light shone, is Vandenberg Air Force Base.
