Multiple sightings

During the middle of June, my roommate and I had witnessed a rather bright star over Ormond beach on beach side. We live on the intercostal and work nights so often like to hang out and talk on the balcony after work anywhere between 2-5 am.

On one night we witnessed this really bright star which then grew into a thin crescent shape. Assuming we were crazy and seeing the moon behind clouds, we searched to finde the moon which we then realized at the time was behind us.

At this point the bright light turned crescent went back to a bright light with a tail as if the crescent got cut in half, (at this time I called my boyfriend in hysterics trying to explain the sighting but he doesn't believe) soon after it then fade to just a star then disappeared into thin air. It didn't appear for the rest of the night.

Later on in the week, it appeared again, this time a little more south and didn't change into a crescent shape, but did grow a tail of light like a shooting star. Then the tail of light slowly faded, but the light grew bigger as if it was closer then ended up fading out and disappearing.

We witnessed it two more times the last time being tonight the 16th. Tonight my boyfriend was present to assure I wasn't crazy! Tonight I seen it first as a bright colorful flashing star, which my boyfriend always claimed as satilites in the sky. But this flashing light soon turned into a bright white light and then it ends up turning into a crescent shape and then back to a bright star then disappeared. All the sightings last about 30 mins but randomly in the early AM, sometimes higher sometimes just a over beachside Ormond.

Thanks to the last sighting my bf believes me finally! Lol It drives me crazy to not be able to explain these sights at all!

I have video of the light going from dark to bright.
