WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — What was in the sky over ocean isle beach this weekend?
“I thought that’s a strange light, maybe it’s a helicopter light and I was watching them go, and they sorta did like a half circle,” said Woozy Dell, who is vacationing for the week out on Ocean Isle Beach, “and then I saw another one come, and then I thought this is bizarre, and it got a little interesting.”
What she says she saw were a series of dots in the sky. They appeared to be glowing orbs, changing in color, and multiplying in number.
“So I saw 2 and then I started seeing 3 and then I started seeing 4 and then I started counting them because I thought my gosh what is this,” said Dell, “What I saw was an orange-ish red and when it went back around it was white.”
She saw it all late Saturday night. She said it lasted just 17 minutes.
“It was in the sky and then went away and it was, the lights, were so unusual that you know it was something you don’t forget,” said Dell.
We got an email from someone in Wilmington seeing strange lights in the Wrightsville Beach sky too. Problem is no one knows what it was.
“I have to admit,” she laughed, “I did go out the next night looking. And tonight looks like a clear night so.”
