Location: Emerald Isle, NC
Shape: Circle
Duration:45 minutes
4 red/amber lights seen 4 times in 45 minutes- no sound, circular shape- clear night.

Sitting out on the deck overlooking the ocean in the 6800 block of Ocean Drive on Emerald Isle. Almost full moon and clear night- little clouds in the sky. Looked up with my daughter and asked her if she saw the lights and she agreed- we saw 3 red/amber lights in a row, no sound coming from them, maybe a flicker, but not blinking- then one by one they went out- in a row. About 10 minutes later I saw them in about the same position in the sky and they appeared to come on one by one and then go out one by one- a total of 3 lights. Again, no sound, no continued blinking like a helicopter or a plane would make- silent. I called my family outside- 4 more adults and 6 more kids. In about 10 minutes we again saw the row of red/amber lights- 4 lights this time come on in silence and then go out- my dad said" well that was a circular shape". Everyone started screaming and was very excited. 10 minutes later we saw it for the final time a little bit further no! rth or to our left. Caught it on video film this time- same amber lights- no blinking, just on and then off, one at a time. Everyone agreed it was not an aircraft, flare or fireworks- no smoke, no sound, no "falling flames"- just the lights in the sky. Stayed outside for another 30 minutes and didn't see them any more. Will have to submit video when we get home and I have time to download it.
