Location: Wailua, HI
Duration: 25 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|Lights above Kauai beach
On the time listed, a friend and I were fishing on the beach we were there for about 90 minutes prior to the event, at the time listed it was dark with a quarter moon in the upper western part of the heavens.
At the time listed the friend I was with spotted orange lights, which made me turn towards it, when I looked at it the lights were a row of 6-8 distinctive orange lights parallel to the ocean which were in the process of collapsing, or the row of lights were diminishing starting with the outermost and diminishing to a single orange light, and then no lights. The color was a consistent burnt orange similar to arcturus but brighter, the lights were located about 10 degrees above the horizon in a eastern direction.
A few minutes past when the orange light appeared a little higher and to the left, this time a sustained light output of a single orange light was witnessed which lasted about 7- 9 seconds.
15 minutes later in a northeastern direction, orange lights were witnessed, this time several lit up at once in different locations, taking place within the parameters of a 1 foot radius at arms length, some were sustained, some were slow flashes, at some moments it seemed there were 4-6 separate lights shining at once. The lights all seemed to be about 2-3 miles in distance uring the events.
