Shape: Diamond
Duration:10 secs
I glanced out window on upper floor looking SW as I passed by. There was a set of lights similar to aircraft strobes but extremely bright and with no pattern. They flashed in a diamond pattern very fast. I noticed a red strobe W of the object, which appeared to have more than one light involved and was coming towards the diamond shape. When they got closer together, they went off in a westerly direction. They were at approx. 20 deg. above horizon. and this would place them over the Gulf Islands. I was sure it was a plane and couldn't convince my mind how it would work if it was. I still can't figure it out. Diamond was approx. larger than my thumb if I held it at arm's lemgth towards the object.
