Pulsating Fireball over Dana Point

My boyfriend and I were sitting on our balcony at a hotel in Dana Point. We were facing Northwest when we noticed a red glowing light rising up. I have witnessed these things many times and I was excited to have him witness it as well. He is NOT a believer. He always tries o debunk what I see by saying it was Chinese lanterns or a plane. He is now baffled by it, but I know for a fact we witness a red fireball. It was bright red. We were first noticed the fireball when it was the size of a tiny red star. Then all of a sudden It grew bigger and then smaller as it was rising. This thing was huge in the distance. It grew to the size of a basketball. Then would reduce to the size of star all while glowing and floating. Then after about a minute, it shrank again and completely vanish.

My boyfriend of course was in disbelief trying to debunk it, but what sealed the deal was the helicopter to followed that circled for a good 15 minutes after it disappe! ared.

NOTE: We have not heard or seen one helicopter all night or ll day for that matter.
