Location: Sunset Beach, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Lights (sparkling diamond shaped) appeared in the sky over Atlantic Ocean in North Carolina, 12-10-12.

On December 10, 2012 at approximately 7:50 pm, 5 members of a family wish to report unusual lights that appeared to be moving, traveling and bouncing in the atmosphere above the seashore (Atlantic Ocean) at Sunset Beach NC. I am a teacher from this area and the other family members are also from this area and blue collar workers. We were standing on the second floor balcony of our home, overlooking the intercostal waterway and the ocean beyond, looking at the night sky after dinner. The sparkle lights moved about, heading away towards the North East then came back towards the West closer towards us. These lights were high up in the atmosphere and did not appear to be any type of aircraft any of us had ever seen. This light show continued randomly within this area several minutes and then several (3) of them seemed to bust or expand into a bright amber colored star or diamond shape and white star light shapes. A few minutes later, this process began again but! with fewer lights and a few more were to explode into golden star light also. After this they didn't appear anymore. I would like to know if any other reports of this nature were reported in this area.
