|A variety of UFO types seen off Kure Beach at night.
My wife and myself love to sit on Kure Beach at evening and into the night. We like to see the moonlight on the water and also the UFOs. We have seen many in the past 5 years. I will relate only 4 which we saw in 2010-2013.
1. We were about 300 feet or a football field distance from the pier and it was already dark. Suddenly a bright beam of light appeared above the pier. It was no more than 100 feet above it. The beam did not come all the way down to the pier. It lasted maybe 5 or 6 seconds. My wife was able to catch a glimpse in the binoculars of two round lights. Then it was gone, just disappeared. It left no trail or sound. There were several people on the pier.
2. We both saw a bright orb/ufo flying low from the west. When it reached the ocean, it went upward at increased speed. It kept going up until we could no longer see it.
3. On two different occasions, when there was a full moon, we saw an array of lights at ocean level. They must have been only a mile or so out. They were different colors and some were moving back and forth and around. It was like no kind of ship that I know of. It lasted for 20 to 30 minutes and only in one spot.
4. Two UFOs, lights, were moving overhead toward each other. We would assume they were at the altitude of a satellite. They stopped. One got very bright and then became a thin line with a ball of light at the end. Then it was gone. It could be compared to a 'warp jump' from space shows. The other stayed motionless for a while. Sal saw it but I missed it because I was trying to find it with binoculars.
We have not seen too many lately since we don't go to the beach as much because of my wife's health.
