|Two of my friends and I were sitting on the beach in a semi-circle. My friend directly across from me said “what is that coming down the beach”. I turned around and from the Southwest coming directly down the shoreline was a bright white light. At first we thought it was a helicopter but then we noticed how slow it was moving and at times it appeared to hover. The object then cut left over the dunes and at that point we thought it was a Cessna plane or something like that. We went about our business then about five minutes later we saw the object shoot up almost like a rocket from behind the houses. It had two very large circular exhausts (not sure exactly what the correct term is for this). It looked like the Space Shuttle Main Engines but instead of three there were two. The color coming from the exhausts was red and blue. What was strange about all of this is that the object made absolutely no noise at all. I know there is a Marine Corps base close to the area which made me think it could have possibly been a CV-22 Harrier Jet. If I’m right, the Harrier Jet makes noise. Whatever this was, I have never seen anything like it before. The other very, very strange thing is that my friend was wearing a digital watch and it started to consistently blink on and off.
