Location: Kure Beach, NC
|2 groupings of 3 and 4 bright orange round lights over the ocean horizon off the shore at Kure Beach, NC.
My husband and six-year old daughter and I were walking south along the shoreline at Kure Beach, NC (from the pier) and noticed 4 bright orange spheres in a straight horizontal line in the sky out over the ocean...all in a perfectly straight line. North (NYC north, not stratosphere north) of the 4 spheres were three of the exact same objects also in a perfectly straight line, so that all 7 objects were in a straight line moving at the same speed. The objects appeared for about 15 seconds in the sky, moving towards the shore, then they all disappeared at the same time.
Less than a minute later we saw the same objects appear over the ocean again. These lights were in the sky, not in the ocean (i.e., not a ship).
The lights appeared about 5 minutes after my daughter saw a "meteor" over the ocean. I saw the same "meteor" enter the atmosphere. It was not a meteor. It was unlike anything I have ever seen... shooting stars, planes, military or otherwise. It was too big and too close. It was something that swooped down into our atmosphere. I didn’t think much about it until I saw the perfectly round orange bright lights a couple of minutes later. These were not airplane lights...they didn’t twinkle. They were simply bright orange illuminated orbs that moved toward the shore in a supersonic glide.
Fishermen and beachcombers along the shore also saw the same incident. We asked them, because my husband and I were so incredulous about what we had seen. Everyone we talked to about the incident reported the same sighting...bright orange lights in a straight line, 4 and 3 in two groups.
The night sky visibility was excellent...full moon and clear skies.
Our background: My husband has five degrees: MBA, masters, PhD, and others. He is from Minnesota. I am a writer with a B.A. in English from Virginia. We have been married for 10 years and have one six-year-old daughter (who witnessed this with us). We have never experienced something like this...and are somewhat embarrassed to be reporting it now! But we cannot deny what we and so many others witnessed.
