|Multiple orange lights over ocean in eastern sky of North Carolina
I was standing on my porch looking out over the ocean in the eastern sky around 9:00 PM. The moon was very bright and beautiful and so I could see no stars in the sky.
One bright orange light appeared miles out over the water and at about 30 degrees from my vantage point. It disappeared and them reappeared.
Next, another light just like it hovered out from behind the first one so that there were two side by side. Then they both disappeared.
After that, I saw one reappear where the original had been, followed by another and another all the way up to seven or eight of them side by side in a straight line.
Then they all disappeared together.
A little to the right of this event, the same thing happened again this time from left to right.
These certainly were not stars; way too high and not consistent with any type of firework; motion was not consistent with a comet or any other type of heavenly body.
I continued to look for another 20 or 30 minutes and saw nothing else.
