Shape: Light
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: The object changed color
unusual light

While walking the dog I am always star gazing and while looking at the sky a large red light just appeared. This was no running light from a plane, to give an example of how large the light was, hold a quarter out at arms length and that is the size of the red light. The light was stationary for about one minute and then the size of the light reduced to the size of a typical running light then slowly traveled along the coast going North. It then stopped and turned into a white light of the same size and remained stationary for about for about 30 seconds, while stationary the white light grew in size to about the size of a fify cent piece. There was a flash of lightning from a storm out over the ocean and then the light simply went out.
