Shape: Unknown
Duration: 20 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object made a sound, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
6 large white symmetrical round lights appear off surf in Haleiwa Oahu.

Four of us, (age 45-49, 1 male high school math teacher, 1 female elementary French teacher, 1 female nurse, one male landscaper), sitting watching the waves observed the same sighting.

I previously, had heard and observed a commercial jet travelling well overhead . . . what made this observation puzzling to me is that the lights (object) made no sound at any time, but the jet and the helicopters were easily audible.

A clear and Hawaiian starry sky, no moon in view, when 6 white round lights in perfect straight horizontal row, (size of a Canadian Twoonie), stationary 22 degrees above horizon suddenly appear. Hard to estimate the distance away but perhaps within 2 miles. After about 10 seconds the left 2 lights drift slightly to the left and then a slight fade of some and then they all go black.

They had to be above impact of ocean surf as no beam was evident from any light . . . they were not “search light” like.

No sound at any time . . . within a minute helicopters can be heard coming from inland and hover over the general area and then head west up coast. There small search lights were evident.

Within a couple of minutes, one light appears, (in the same area), for about 10 seconds and then goes black.

Helicopters return and then head back inland.
