Location: Ocean Isle, NC
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
It was around 11:30 pm and my husband and I had walked to the edge of the ocean front walk way. We both noticed a large red glowing fireball which was larger than a star or planet. It went away. Then in an area to the left we saw it again and it disappeared. Then we saw it in another spot which was close to before and it vanished. About 5 minutes or so later we saw something appear even further to the right and a much farther distance than before. At first we assumed we were seeing the same object appearing in different locations. Minutes later we went back inside the beach house. Immediately, I told my brother-in-law that we just saw a UFO and expected a good laugh from him. However, he informed us that he was at a store at the Pier and some guys came running in saying they had just seen a UFO. Later, we realized we could've been seeing different objects appearing at different times. We still don't understand what we saw.
