Location: Deal, NJ
Shape: Light
Duration:15 seconds
Walking on the beach at night where one sees many flights going into New York City, I suddenly noticed some lights that were moving in an arc path - first up then down. There was a white flickering light (at the rate of about 3 flickers per second) and a red light. It came to a lower point in the arc, close to the ocean and stopped, as the white light went off.

Then the red light slowly lowered itself towards the ocean surface. I could see the horizon in the dark and the light was lower than the horizon. I was about 8 feet above sea level and stand 6 feet tall, so the light was much lower than 14 feet about the surface.

The red light went on and off a few times and finally disappeared. I waited there for about 2 minutes but it did not come reappear. No sounds were heard and the path seemed to perfectly graceful to be a helicopter like object.
