Out my bedroom window i saw this bright yellow light. this is in the landing path for palomar airport so it's not unusual to see aircraft. but this just hovered. also, the airport doesn't have incoming flights at this time. so i got my phone and snapped pictures and watched it. thinking maybe someone had gotten ahold of a military flare. but then it went up and over a hill so it was out of my view, popped back into view, turned bright white and then vanished.
