SHALLOTTE, NC (WWAY) -- Do you believe we are alone in the universe? Two area men say that a series of events dating back to 2012 have let them know that there is extraterrestrial life out there.
"In the beginning I was nervous at times being a family man with young children these lights are happening very close to my home,” said Joe Kiernan. “Very, very close just several hundred feet away and often times not much higher than the trees."
Brandon Brodsky and Joe Kiernan are two everyday guys who claim to see lights in the Carolina sky that are out of this world.
"When you see it usually most of the time it starts off as one orb, one orange orb that's almost see through and they will string out almost like they're birthing out of each other,” said Brandon Brodsky. “There's no sound. There are no helicopters or airplanes, nothing that could be explained."
Natural skeptic, the men have taken their sightings to the authorities and more often than not are left searching for answers.
"We’ve called many times the FAA to see if there have been any pilot reports of anything reported in the sky at that time,” said Kiernan. “We've checked with Shaw Air Force Base to see if they've had any training exercises going on. Usually on these very active night's there's nothing going on at all."
While many may be scared off by the experience the men say it has opened their mind up to a new world of thinking.
"We are not alone,” said Kiernan. “Realistically and mathematically I don't think it's possible. There's many more out there."
"It would just be kind of ignorant I think to say we're the only life form or the only intelligent life form in this whole universe that's constantly expanding,” said Brodsky.
Both Kiernan and Brodsky say they know there will be naysayers, but they invite each of you to come out for a night of star gazing.
