Location: Carolina Beach, NC
Shape: Fireball
Duration: About 15 minutes the firs
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object emitted other objects
Orange-pink lights/fireballs. Appeared singly and in pairs/patterns over the ocean. Could've been weaponry.

It started as single fireballs over the ocean, which i thought may be distress flares. After seeing a few single orange-pink colored balls light up and disappear they got more rapid. Then one appeared standing in a single place; another appeared next to it. As the first disappeared, a third came of view...neatly spaced apart. After about 20-35 minutes of seeing nothing, a few, less vibrant, single lights appeared. They were spaced apart by seconds as before.

Then, there were two pairs of 2 lights which were visible at the same time but came and went separate times. I dont remember exactly what their movements/patterns were. The last event was right after pairs appeared and danced. A triplet of the orange lights appeared...expanded apart from one another then sucked back in close to each other.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect an evening sighting, and we have corrected the time above to reflect a 9:00 p.m. sighting. PD))
