Brilliant orange saucer shaped object high over ocean near Indian Beach, NC was observed and then reappeared appox. 15 minutes later.

Four witnesses observed a saucer-shaped object very high in the horizon, near the moon, on the evening of July 22, 2010. The sighting occurred at approximately 10:00 p.m. from an oceanfront balcony at Indian Beach, NC.

The object was bright orange or reddish in color with what appeared to be a row of more brilliant squares or some sort of pattern along the center. It remained motionless in the sky for around 5-8 seconds, then disappeared.

We continued to watch the sky, and approximately 15 minutes later we observed a similar object appear further to the east. The object was motionless and disappeared approximately 5-8 seconds later. Sky conditions were mostly clear with a slight haze at the time.
