Reddish-orange lights over ocean at Frisco/Buxton North Carolina - outer banks

On the evening of June 14, 2011, at approximately 9:30pm ET, we were sitting on our top deck of our house, facing a SSE direction. At about 30 degrees above the horizon over the ocean we witnessed a series of lights that appeared and disappeared over the course of about 10 minutes or so.

The first set of lights included three lights in a row that appeared parallel to the horizon. These lights were reddish-orange in color, and were clearly not stars or aircraft. The conditions were mostly clear, and there was almost a full moon.

These three lights appeared to "bank" to the right. There was no noise. In the sky these lights were about the same size as each other, and about 1/16th of the size of a full moon (the moon was visible from our viewpoint where the lights were as well).

All three of these lights disappeared at the same time (no noise and no fading, just blinked off). Then these three lights appeared again at a close but different location, and then quickly disappeared again (about one second in total).

The lights then began to flash randomly (sometimes none, sometimes one, two, three, up to six in total at any one point). These lights again were all within the same field of vision over the SSE sky.
