|White light, stationary, then moved to south very very quickly and disappeared.
We were on the balcony on the 7th floor of our condo. We were sitting there enjoying the breeze. All of the sudden, a white light appeared in the sky. It was too high above the horizon to be 'on' the ocean, so, it was in flight. The light was either stationary, or headed directly towards us. It suddenly moved to the south and disappeared. There was no sound. We thought it might have been a flare, but, it was a white light. Also, a flare would have originated from the water and moved up then down, slowly. About 1 minute later, we saw another white light, to the north of that general area, at the same altitude. It appeared for about 2 or 3 seconds then disappeared. We were shocked at what we had just seen and went in to get the video camera. We are in our mid-30's and never seen anything like this, nor reported anything like this before. We heard a news story on Fox about similar sightings there and thought maybe we should add our voices to the various reports.
I know, in early 2000, there were reports from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution about a section of the continental shelf on the east coast showing signs of seperation off the NC/SC coast. Could this have been sediment gas from that, that somehow ignited in the sky.
