Duration: 5 min
bright orange lights observed from beach to east-southeast in repeating pattern

Observation from the beach in Island Beach State Park, to the east-southeast, about on-third up in the sky. very bright orange lights appeared, looked like a flare or fireworks burst. No boats/ships below, no evidence of a rocket from a boat. Lights would come on one, two, and then a group, looking like a rash or pimples. Observed once for about 10 seconds, then disappeared. Reappeared in the same pattern again after about 30-45 seconds, and then twice more. Upon reflection, would have been how lights on a rotating object might appear, with a dark interval. Lights were remarkably bright. After a final appearance of about 14 seconds in a similar pattern, they disappeared. Lights moved slightly to the southwest during this viewing.
