|My two friends and I were on Wrightsville Beach, NC. We had been observing the stars, the ocean, and my two friends were using their metal detector. My female friend and I had decided to sit down and talk, while the other male friend used his metal detector. We both had been looking up towards the sky for about fifteen minutes. I saw an object appear out of no where that looked like a flare in the sky but was very high up, higher than a flare would be and it's color was white, it was very bright and large. After the object flared, it then looked like it disappeared. My friend was talking and I asked her if she saw the same thing. She said she saw something out of the corner of her eye. About five minutes later the object reappeared. My friend and I both saw it together that time. It flared out again, the same white color, it then looked like it disappeared, then it became smaller, it looked circular then and had a slight white luminescent edge around it's circular shape. The middle of the object was dark. We watched it until it finally disappeared which was about a minute or so. We watched the sky for a while then decided to watch the sky as we were walking back to the Sun Spree where we had parked.
