Every evening we sit on the porch of our oceanfront beach home. On 9/5/07 we were looking out at the ocean and noticed 3 light orange lights in the sky that appeared for approx. 3 seconds and then faded away. Then the 3 lights appeared again in a different spot and faded away after a few seconds. This happened from 9:30PM until about 11PM and every time the 3 lights would change locations in the sky. At times only 1 light would appear and fade away. After about 11:30PM we didn't notice any more lights.
We were sitting out on the porch around 8:45PM on 9/6/07 and noticed 2 orange lights again. They moved locations and appeared a second time. We haven't seen anymore since 9:15PM.
There are 11 of us staying at this location. None of us had been drinking or impaired in any way. We even told our neighbors next door about it and they witnessed the lights with us on 9/5/07 around 10:30PM. We have all seen the lights and think it's very strange. We cannot hear any noises due to the high winds and waves crashing. None of us here have ever witnessed something so strange so we decided to do some online research and found a bunch of other people who have seen the same type of lights. What are they? Will we ever know? :)
((NUFORC Note: Many reports of these lights. We do not know what they are. PD))
