Bright cingular light above San diego that has no sound, has very jerky movement, and is at a extremely high altitude.

Me and my family spotted a glowing sphere of some sort about 80 degrees in the sky. The Sphere is a very bright white and appears to be hovering in place. It is brighter than any star or any planet around us by at least 10 times. The object appears to be moving in a small triangular shape with very jerky movements. We watched it for approximately 14 minutes before the light completely shut off. About 3 minutes later it was there again seemingly to appear out of nowhere, as if the lights just got turned back on. There is no sound and it looks to be at a very high altitude, much too high to be a firework, airplane, or helicopter of some sort. This light has also been seen on 08/04/2009 at 0:22 (12:22 am), about the same time as this one started. Both events were exactly the same, but the one on 08/04/2009 was to the far east and appeared to be over the Alpine area.
