National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 7/5/2010 21:40 (Entered as : 7/5/10 21:40)
Reported: 7/12/2010 3:16:45 PM 15:16
Posted: 7/19/2010
Location: South Bethany Beach, DE
Shape: Light
Duration: 2 mins
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Glowing red/orange lights in sky.

At approx. 9:40 pm we noticed 3 red/orange glowing lights heading north towards us at a slow rate of speed, coming up the beach about a mile off the ground (fairly low),

at first I thought they may be helicopters because the leading light appeared to slow as if waiting for the other two.

We then noticed it was perfectly silent , no motor noises. They continued towards us for a bit then turned east and headed out over the ocean.

At that point we saw 2 more appear then another 2 and finally an 8th light. They all followed the same approximate flight pattern, although at slightly different altitudes.

The leading light then all the following lights seemed to dim and dissapear at roughly the same area over the ocean , one at a time.

A friend got her video camera and recorded much of this, on the playback we could see a perfectly round "orb" encircling the lights that were not visible to the eye.

They did not appear to be a "spacecraft" in the conventional descriptions.
