Location of Sighting: Nags Head, North Carolina
Date of Sighting: October 14, 2019
Time of Sighting: 10:15 PM EDT
Description: At about 10:15 PM, on the outer banks of NC. I noticed one very bright light (orb) dropping over the ocean near the horizon (about 3 miles I think), which I thought was a shooting star. But this object had no trail, which I thought was odd. It was brighter than the full moon, visibility was clear and there were scattered clouds that night. The object (orb) turned just above the horizon toward the coast, and in an arch, the style moved from the horizon to near the shore in less than 2 to 3 seconds. For a short second I thought it look like an inbound missile based on the style of the arch and speed it was moving. Near the shore, estimated at a altitude about 1,000 feet it made a sharp left, then dropped half the distance to the ocean, then went to the right. Then it went straight up through a cloud (maybe 2,000 to 5,000 feet) and circled (barrel roll style) up to the left and back down to about 1,000 feet. And then it shot to the right down the beach (south) at a very high rate of speed and disappeared. All this took place in less than 30 seconds. I am not sure what this object was, but it was very fast. It was faster than I have seen jets move. I thought it might be a drone, but the speed and the very bright light to me do not match what I think drone can do.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
