Duration:20 - 30 minutes
Numerous red orbs moving north over the ocean

My wife and I were on vacation with her parents in Bethany Beach, Delaware. Her parents and I were sitting on the porch facing the ocean.

Around 9:30 or so I saw a single red/orange light in the sky moving south to north along the coast over the water. I commented on it to my wife and mother in law, at that point we did not think too much of it. Shortly after that there were more of them.

As we watched for the next 20 minutes or so, there had to have been at least 30 of these lights one after another moving up the coast, some singly, some in groups. Some of them were red/orange in color as reported on this page, occasionally there would be one that was closer to yellow in color.

None of us had a camera capable of taking a good image of the lights though. My father in law thought perhaps they were some sort of lighted balloon part of some sort of celebration, but seeing this page I am not so sure. I’m not sure at all what they were or could have been. But I figured after reading some of these reports, I’d share what we saw.
