7 orange, glowing, silent fireballs moving along same trajectory, equidistant apart over Nag's Head beach, NC.

UFO Sighting by 7 people Nag’s Head beach, North Carolina, USA September 3, 2014, 11pm I am a 51 year of woman. I was on vacation with my brother, (55), my sister-in-law, (51), my niece and nephew and 2 of their friends. My niece, nephew and their 2 friends are in there mid-twenties.

On the date above we were all sitting on the beach having a bonfire and roasting marshmallows.

We were facing east, towards the Atlantic Ocean.

Suddenly, at approximately 11pm, my sister-in-law saw an orange glowing ball in the sky to the north above the land were the fishing pier meets the land. She yelled out: “Look at that!”, “What is it?” We all turned in the direction she was pointing and watched the orange, glowing ball move silently towards us and then out over the ocean, on a southeast trajectory. It grew brighter (larger), as it moved towards us.

After about 1 minute another glowing ball, (exactly the same in appearance), appeared from the same location, (above where the pier touches the land) and began following the first ball’s trajectory, exactly. Meanwhile the first ball moved out to a location over the sea and simply grew fainter until it disappeared totally. The second ball did the same thing and then a third, fourth, etc., until we had seen a total of 7 orange fireballs move along the exact same trajectory and disappear over the ocean in the exact same location. Each ball was visible for about 45–60 seconds. These ball were exactly equidistance apart, as they arrived and disappeared.

All seven of us witnesses were in awe. We tried to capture the glowing balls on cell phone cameras and video, but they just look like specks on a black night sky as it was so dark there are no reference points in the images.

Some of the witnesses had had a few beers with dinner, but were not intoxicated. My sister-in-law and I were 100% sober as we don’t drink alcohol.

I should mention later that night, I believe around 2am, (technically Sept. 4), my nephew and his 2 friends report seeing blue neon-type streaks of light flashing before them on the beach, at lighting speed and then going into the ocean, towards the same location the fireballs had headed. They said when they ran towards the ocean to get a closer look the blue neon lights, now under the water, they slowly disappeared. I personally did not witness these blue neon colored lights.

I should also mention that earlier on the same day, Sept 3, 2014, at 9:30 in the morning we heard an incredible “sonic boom” type sound that was so loud and caused such a vibration everyone on the beach jumped up and was looking around in panic. There were no planes in sight or anything else to be seen in the sky or the ocean at that time.
