Saw many white lights about the size of grapefruits in the tree line while camping in North Carolina

Camping in the Pisgah Mountains of NC. I woke up at 2:30 am to go to the bathroom and looking across the field about 50 yards away in the tree line I first saw 3 white lights they were like a soft white but bright at the same time they would appear then disappear quickly. Because I just woke up I though just stand here for a while and make sure you are not just seeing something so I stood there for about 2 minutes and the lights increase some really high and low they would be bright then go out I could see a trail on some of them. I got kind of scared because all of a sudden there were a lot of them and at that time one of our dogs that was outside started barking, so I got her and went in the tent.

When I was in the tent all I could think was I sure hope someone else is seeing this. I laid there for about 15 mins then another one of our dogs that was in the tent next to me started growling and barking not constant just every couple minutes, he got out of his tent and came into mine which had the other dogs and when he came in, the tent door the stayed cracked and then I started to see a laminating light coming through the crack in the door and laminating the tent.

I laid there for about 15 minutes and watched. Still hoping someone else was seeing this. I did want to go out or even open a window, but at this time I had 3 dogs in my tent and I really didn’t want to get them all going crazy and barking , but looking back now I wish I would have went back outside and observe what was going on.

In the morning I was the first up and when my sister woke up I asked her if she got up last night she said she woke up and I said did you go outside she said no. I started to tell her when I woke up to go to the bathroom I saw these lights right way she says I saw something laminating my tent and I heard Lucy bark and I thought you were up walking around with a flash light. Then she said "I was trying to figure out what you were doing and I was thinking to myself why is she starting the fire again". After exchanging the complete story with her and all the other campers I am convinced what I saw was some kind of phenomenon that I can't even began to explain.
