Posted: 9/24/2012
Location: Holden Beach, NC
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 hour
Large triangle formation of 3 orange fireballs followed by 8-10 small craft with erratic blinking white lights.

My partner and I were sitting casually sitting on the front porch of our beach house facing the ocean. The house is located on the other side of the road from the oceanfront homes.

Suddenly, without a sound or any type of indication, 3 orange lights appeared in the sky in a large triangle formation. The lights had the appearance of fire and glowed for about 7 seconds before disappearing.

The triangle was parallel to the shore with it's "point" toward the West. This point was the first light to disappear; quickly followed by the trailing two which disappeared simultaneously.

Shortly after this, about 8-10 craft appeared in the sky at varying intervals and numbers over the next hour. They were visible only by their erratically blinking white lights. It was almost like they were communicating with each other using these lights. They were back and forth all across the sky. The orange fireballs did appear twice more in front of the house one at a time several minutes apart.

It was so sudden and so strange that we'll be glued to our chairs every night for the next 4 days.
