|Two orange lights hovering above ocean at night
Two orange lights appeared out of nowhere and stayed in the same position, hovering above the ocean at Melbourne Beach. 5 nerdy engineering students, who don't drink or do drugs, spotted the lights. One light appeared before the other and disappeared, before the other, too. Lights were very bright, illuminated beach, could see shells and look through bag with ease. Very small lights, seemed to be very far out in ocean, had faint cone of light around each light.
Were probably not flares because they did not rise or fall at all. There were others at the beach that probably saw the lights, too.
