Shape: Circle
Duration: 15:00
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
bright orange object

While driving home from the post office I noticed a bright orange stationary light in the sky to the left of me over I would estimate be Carlsbad,Ca. I pulled over to watch the orange light as it flickered like a candle and was very bright and did not move at all. Then it slowly faded out until it was not visable( not too sure but I thought I saw it shoot straight up with tremendous speed after it went dark). After that I get in the car and drive back home and call my fiance and tell her. She then tells me she sees the same light over oceanside, ca about 15 to 20 miles north of where I saw the object. I rush home and see the object again reappear and disappear several times. One strange thing did happen and it was that after it disappeared one time it reappeared right after it disappeared for a few seconds then was gone again. Whatever it was would like to know( I would count flares out because of no smoke trail and how it "re-appeared" after disappearing ! right away).
