|Series of extremely large orange lights on the horizon
Two horizontal sets of two large orange lights on the horizon illuminated and then extinguished. About 6 degrees to the right one set of two lights illuminated and extinguished. Then six degrees to the right one more set of two lights illuminated and extinguished.
Confirmed sighting with about a dozen people about 1/2 mile down the beach who were equally astonished. Lights were way to large to be associated with man made craft and too stable to be a shooting star, etc. Estimated distance from shore was about 12-15 miles. Distance between the lights was at least 1/2 mile. Lights were not flares.
The following morning there was a great deal of light flashes in the clouds where the first set of lights first appeared. This is not a normal occurrence for the area.
