OCEAN ISLE BEACH, 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 two, and then I started seeing three, and then I started seeing four, and then I started counting them, because I thought, ‘My gosh. What is this?” Dell said. “What I saw was an orangish 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 it was something you don’t forget,” Dell said.

We got an e-mail from someone in Wilmington seeing strange lights in the Wrightsville Beach sky, too, that night. Problem is no one knows what it was.

“I have to admit,” Dell laughed, “I did go out the next night looking. And tonight looks like a clear night, so…”

Maybe the ones that do come forward really are the “special” ones.

The multiple lights are nothing new as I have seen them also.We lived at the beach for many years and there has always been the “Orange Orb’s” with color change to white and sometimes red and blue.Good work Dell for stating what you saw.What a shame most people are too afraid of riducule to step forward and speak from the heart. Maybe the ones that do have sightings and come forward are the special ones? How can hundreds of sightings be false?

Looking south from the north end of Carolina Beach toward the Tiki Bar pier. About 11 PM. I saw an orange orb over the ocean and much too high above the horizon to be a boat. I watched it in a clear sky for several minutes when it split into two. Completely stationary One abruptly faded out and the second remained for quite some time and then also faded and was gone. Distance of a mile or so away I’m guessing. Seems people see odd things here often but most people don’t report sightings. I am curious and will keep looking.

My family was vacationing in OIB in June of last year. We were out walking one night and saw something similar. Along with the orbs there were random flashes of lights in the sky.

Probably Yankee drones scoping out the area with infrared cameras. Probably plan to move here and try to make it like the place they ran away from.
