Oak Island, North Carolina - 06-20-14

Shape: Sphere - Duration: 5 minutes - Glowing orbs in ocean surf during thunderstorm.

This sighting may not technically be classified as "UFO", since the objects were not actually flying, but it came on the heels of a sighting of the typical orange orbs and flashing white lights frequently seen over the ocean, and a sighting of a strange aircraft which I believe was a military drone. I am reporting those sightings separately.

On the night of June 20, my husband and I were vacationing with his family at an ocean-front home on Oak Island about 1/2 mile east of Ocean Crest Pier. At about 10:30 a thunderstorm began to roll in, and by about 11:00 the storm was in full force.

My husband, his brother, my daughter and I were out on the porch facing the ocean, watching the lightning. My daughter, who is 22 years old, suddenly said "what is THAT?" and pointed to the right (west) toward the beach.

We saw a glowing, blue ball. At first we assumed someone was walking on the beach with a light, although it was a torrential downpour and there was lighting flashing every 10 seconds or so.

However, when the lightning would flash we could clearly see that the ball was floating in the surf, probably in about 4 feet of water, and it was moving in a straight, steady line up the shore toward the east.

Based on its location, it appeared to be at least 2 feet in diameter. We then noticed a glowing red ball following the blue ball by about 200 feet, and following that was a second red ball which also appeared to be about 200 feet behind the first red ball.

We stood and watched the balls moving through the surf. They were not being blown or pushed by the waves, and they were not bobbing. The blue ball appeared to the larger than the red balls. They moved in a steady, straight line past our house. My daughter tried to get a video on her phone, but her camera wouldn't focus because of the heavy rainfall.

About that time a young woman in the house next door came out onto her porch and saw the balls as well. She asked if we knew what they were, but we could only shake our heads in bewilderment.

As we watched, the first red ball suddenly seemed to roll or be blown out of the water and went up into the dune. As soon as that occurred, the other balls seemed to just disappear.

The following morning, I walked along the dunes to see if there was any sign of the red ball, but found nothing. I am completely baffled.
