ZigZagging Light over Atlantic Ocean off Coast of Atlantic City, NJ

To Whom It May Concern:

On November 16th, 2008 at approximately, 2:30am, my friend and I were walking to our vehicle which was parked on the top floor of the parking garage at a casino in Atlantic City. While looking out towards the Atlantic Ocean, coast line began roughly ½ mile in distance from where we stood, I noticed a quasi orange/amber light very thin, and rough 1 inch wide (from my perspective) slowly flying from the south parallel to the coast line, then do a zigzag and dart off north.

My initial thought was that this was a shooting star based on what I have seen in the past. Also the shape of the object was very similar to a shooting star as well. The thing that really caught my eye was at the slow speed it traveled. Most shooting stars are gone in a flash not too mention the altitude of the object was in our atmosphere, not outside. Once I noticed how abnormal it was I then brought the object to the attention of my friend to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating. We had just left a bar and were not completely sober, but we were also not completely inebriated either.

We both saw the same thing, and it was completely legit.

Take care,
