Large bright long light sitting on Pacific Ocean's horizon off coast of Carlsbad, southern California.

6:30am Tuesday, May 24th, 2016...

Our backyard looks west towards the Pacific Ocean where we can see San Clemente Island, and just north of that is Catalina Island. We noticed this very bright long light sitting on the ocean horizon.

At first thought it was the Sun's reflection, but that would be impossible for the Sun's location at that time. Then thought it may have been a cruise ship, but have never seen one out there before, plus on closer look, through binoculars, we couldn't see any body of structure, just either one long bright light, or big lights close together looking as one. The lights were stationary. No movement, no flashing, no noise. nothing. Just stationary, perched on the water's horizon.

My wife and I watched it for about 5 mins, then went inside. About 5 mins later I went to check on it and it had completely gone...

I have a photo on my cell phone.
