Name of photo: Reddish-orange lights sighted at Carolina Beach, January 6, 2016.

Description and date of incident: The photo was taken on 1/5/16 approximately between 2-3AM Eastern Standard Time.

Location: The ocean horizon of Carolina Beach, North Carolina, in front of the boardwalk.

The red-amber colored lights blinked off and on all night long until the sun came up (no craft, just lights). Note: This picture was taken on a tripod, as well as, time exposed due to nighttime visibility. I tried using a cell phone but it would not work because it was too dark.

I can rule out any identifiable structures (boat/other) related to the lights seen. I'm not sure what this is? The lights appeared separated but together (no identifiable structure associated with it) at the same time and followed a sequencing of left to right and then right to left repeatedly until the sun came up.
