Location: Oak Island, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
6 red-orange lights moving in pairs, not flares or otherwise propelled

We witnessed 3 pair of 2 bright red-orange lights over the ocean. They seemed to move in pairs. They didn't move up or down as if propelled or as if a rocket of some sort. The paired lights seemed to move around each other. After approximately 30 seconds the lights disappeared suddenly. We then thought we saw a light far off shore that was also the same color which could have been a boat but it was dark and all we saw was the light.

There wet four of us who witnessed this event and all agreed that they were not airplanes. We also agreed that we had never seen anything like this before. We are four adults vacationing with our kids and quite sane!
