Reported: 5/27/2009 8:55:48 AM 08:55
Posted: 6/9/2009
Location: Oak Island, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:45 minutes
Two reddish-orange lights appearing 2-4 seconds, then reappearing every 5-10 minutes, several smaller lights twinkling continuously

Two very bright, circular lights (similar to auto headlights) appeared for about 2 to 4 seconds in the south-western sky about 30 degrees up from the horizon off Oak Island, NC. The lights were reddish-orange fading to a lighter orange in the center with a dark center dot. About every 5 to 10 minutes these lights reappeared for a 2-4 second duration - always one double, sometimes two or three sets (they almost seemed to be orbiting in a large horizontal circle). At some point several very tiny, bright white lights in a triangular formation (a bit east and lower in the sky) began blinking continuously. Shortly before 10 pm (after 5 to 7 reappearances), the bright lights lined up horizontally to the east of the reddish-lights – then they merged in the middle and disappeared.
