immense golden light over Provincetown harbor returned three more times in 12-15 minutes

as we were going to bed in our house on the water's edge, just as my wife got into bed, an immense goldenish light appeared over Provincetown bay,; it cast no shadow and after a few seconds rose off to the right, changing as it diminished into an oval shape with a dark or hollow center, moving off into the night sky. I had called my wife to look at it, which she did, so there was a witness. A minute or two later it reappeared from the left, became the same immense light, same location, again no shadow or glare. I was so astonished that I stood there, and again it went away and returned, twice, a total of four appearances.

The unfortunate thing is that that afternoon I had left my NIkon camera downstairs to ake with us to see our granddaughter, and neither had nor remembered it.

I called the local airport and police, and the next day the Mass National Guard at Otis AFB, with no results or interest.
