Location: Kure Beach, NC
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 seconds
Orange glow disappears over kure beach, nc after 10-15 seconds.

Was sitting with my father in law on vacation when we saw an orange glow rise up over land and move out over the ocean. I figured it was a plane but planes usually have flashing lights on the wings. There were no flashing lights.

We watched it for a few more seconds and the orange glow started to get dimmer as it moved away. It disappeared after about 10-15 seconds.

Don't know if it was some sort of rocket or what but it definitely wasn't a plane.
