Location: Avon, NC
Shape: Fireball
Duration:15-20 minutes
Around 11:30 PM on 7/26/12 me and two of my cousins were looking out over our balcony at A beachfront house in Avon, NC, in a southern direction. We saw what looked like 2 or 3 orange lights in the distance. At first we thought they were hot air ballon flares as they looked like small fires fading in and out of visibility. After a few minutes they went away but then they came back. There were again 2 or 3, but they had changed position and 2 of them were hovering in a straight line parallel to the ground. In the background it looked like a smaller light was flying around very quickly. These lights faded out as well and again returned but much closer. The colors were still orange but seemed to take on a little red Coloring as well. one of the lights "split" into 3 smaller lights and seemed to be in a kind of triangular disk shape, almost like the bottom of a craft. These lights faded out soon after and then we went inside. Our parents were out on the beach and saw the same lights we did.

All of us are very rational and level headed, but we all agreed no one knew what the lights were. It was very strange.
