Walking my dog near Pelican Watch on the beach around 5:30 this morning. I saw a orange/red Chinese lantern type ball leave from over the houses toward the Kure Beach Pier and move parallel up the coast, north. It stayed at a constant height and moved smoothly through the air, approx. 20 miles per hour. It stayed around 3 stories or so off the ground. (It dissapeared suddenly and turned white and rapidly went east)

Either the same one or a different one was spotted doing the same thing a little farther north near Carolina Sands. The object stayed right off the coast maybe 20ft off shore at the most.

It disappeared out of my view just before sunrise, going north toward carolina beach and Wrightsville.

I avoided it getting close to me by leaving the beach
