Bright human/diamond shape seen over the Pacific Ocean from San Diego area then disappeared

On the night of January 17, 2009, a family member pointed out an outstandingly bright light in the sky over the ocean. The night was perfectly clear with not a cloud in sight. Two other family members walked outside and saw the light. I personally stood there for five minutes to gaze at it. At first I thought it was a planet I never recognized before, but I knew that to be false after about fifteen minutes. At first it was just a bright light, but after staring at the center it looked almost like a cross or even a human shape. Four spokes (for lack of a better word) sticking out from a main frame. There were rays of light coming from all sides. These rays seemed to be rainbow colored and white at different times. It was hard to tell if it was moving or if it was just my eyes, but it seemed like it was moving slightly. Like I said, about fifteen minutes later the light disappeared and that was the last I saw of it.
