Duration:30 seconds
On Aug, 26, a bright, silvery-white light was observed; it appeared and disappeared three times in the due east at about 60-65 degrees.

On Friday, August 26th, 2011, at about 20:30 hrs, standing on the deck of a friends' beach home on the West end, I witnessed a large white light appear and disappear three times, at precisely equal intervals.

It was a large, silvery-white light that appeared for about 2-3 seconds, disappeared for about 10-12 seconds, reappeared and disappeared again, and reappeared a third time for 2-3 seconds, then disappeared again. We continued our vigil for about an hour after the third sighting, but did not observe any further sightings of the object.

The near-dark sky was absolutely clear, there was a southerly breeze, and the object was about 60-65 degrees off the horizon at a nearly due east location. It was very slightly horizontally oval and about the size of an English pea held at arm's length. It was as bright and luminous as a vehicle head lamp with no observable structure in or around the object; no sounds whatsoever were heard emanating from the object.

A friend on the deck with me observed the final 2-3 second interval and confirmed the sighting was indeed an anomalous bright silvery-white light, inexplicable in origin, with no sounds associated with the sighting.

He called a friend about 40 miles inland and she stated that she saw the same consecutive trio of lights that I saw and was able to confirm that the sighting was at about 60-65 degrees and at a nearly due east location.

From this same location a sighting was reported to the N.U.F.O.R.C. on August 12, 2100.
