Possible UFO sighting 50 miles off of NJ in Ocean.

While riding out 80 miles off of Cape May, NJ, to go fishing in the Canyons, a bright white light flickering red and white was seen above the water, due East approximately 50+ miles offshore, while it could’ve been an aircraft it was visible for well over 30 mins (we were moving at 25mph, aircraft move at 500 mph and would’ve been out of sight quickly).

Also thinking it could’ve been a star except that the sun was rising and this was the only thing in the sky and looked too bright for a star, in addition when looking around to try and see anything else around there appeared to be a light right below it was above/on the water.

I then searched again for anything else In the sky when I looked back at the spot it was gone.
