Bright light appears over the ocean in Newport Beach for 3 minutes on Friday 12-30-16

We were at Balboa Pier, in Newport Beach, California, at approximately 8:15pm pacific time on 12-30-16. We were looking at the horizon to the west into the ocean, for the moon, (which there wasn't) and noticed a steak in the clouds. Then out of the clouds suddenly a bright round light appeared. We were saying to one another it was an airplane, but it just stayed in one location for about 3 minutes and then withdrew from its origin in seconds. With no residual light to be seen or any new light originating. We all felt like it was peculiar?
