Location: Hatteras Village, NC
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:10 minutes
Initially observed a small object which was thought to be a drone circling Hatteras Lighthouse from a distance of 10 miles southwest at the beachfront. The National Park Service (NPS) prohibits flying drones at the Hatteras National Seashore, and given the fact that the NPS offices were directly below where the object was observed, I took interest in continuing to watch the object, The object emitted no sound, and became larger over a period of 2-3 minutes and kept circling the Hatteras Lighthouse. As it became more defined, either becoming larger, or from coming closer to the Lighthouse as a reference point, the object became well defined in shape. The object completely resembled a 20 foot ocean container hovering approximately 200 feet in altitude and had no visible signs of propulsion or aerodynamic surfaces, just a rectangular dark box and made no sound. The object slowly hovered and circled the Lighthouse for 2-3 minutes then slowly moved Northeast and disappeared.
