Strange light off Diamondhead

On December17th I noticed a strange light high high above Diamondhead out to sea about 10 miles.I live directly behind Diamondhead on Oahu Hawaii on a ridge called Waialae Iki.I noticed the light about 6:15 pm while the sky was still very bright.As it grew darker the light began to pulsate turning every color in the rainbow evrey 2 seconds, red, green,blue,yellow,-red,green,blue,yellow.We then watched this pulsating lightslowly turn to a dark yellow with this red stuff seemingly dripping from it.We watched this through my telescope as well as the naked eye.Then abruptly at 7:48 pm it disappeared.-That was nothing compared to what happened the following night,Dec.18.The light again appeared very early about 6:12 very light out with no other stars in sight.As we watched the light we noticed that tonight it was very yellow in color-different from the previous night. as it grew darker the light became more and more intense with these spear-like projections com! ing off of it geometrically or 1 or 2 at a time up to 14 or 18 "spears" It was beautiful!It resmbled the star you put on top of your Christmas tree.My wife could see it from Ala Moana about 5 miles awy from me.she said "It looksnlike a spider."The beautiful light then began to turn a dark yellow then red eventually drifting low over the ocean and disappearing off Baraber's Pointat 8:05 pm.December 19-The light again appeared at 6:15 pm.Using a Sony videocam with 42x lense I the beautiful pulsating lights with all the colors and rays as the past few nights sometimes resembling a snowflakeuntil 8:15 when it evntually turned into a red dot and disappeared far out to sea off Barber's Point.December 21-The solstice?Tonight, while waiting for the light it appeared out of nowhere about 60 degrees in the sky stright off of Diamondhead.It then did much of the same beautiful things in the sky that it has done in the last few days.I do not know if this is a U.F.O. a star, sattelite or! what? Can anyone explain what we are seeing?
