Large fireballing flashes on and off. Smaller white flashes move across the sky at incredible rate.

First, we see a large yellow flash that lasted for about three seconds. After reappearing, the flash would be in a slightly different location. It did not move in any one direction. After a longer pause of about five minutes, the flash or fireball object came again with the same general pattern. Later we started to see small flashing lights that were white and looked like stars. They seemed to stay in a group and moved across the sky at a faster rate than any plane could hope to go. The smaller lights would follow each other around, often flashing more as the got closer together. All of these events took place over the ocean and were seen from the beach.
