Shape: Fireball | Duration: 1.5 hours
Source:

Orange looking fireball hovering over Camp Lejeune.At first, it was thought to be a shooting star except it was large as it passed over the roof tops. Object came to a stop above Camp Lejeune area near the airstation. It had an orange glow and looked circular through binoculars. It slowly sank under the tree line and roughly 4 helicopters circled it until out of sight. Observers are military spouses, 2 females, one male. All were gathered outside on a front porch talking. First female saw what she assumed was a shooting star, when it suddenly stopped and began hovering she pointed it out to the second female. She then found her husband's binoculars and began focusing in on it. Because the first female had glasses she gave them to the second femal who described seeing one side lit up looking like fire with a round shape on the top right portion. Male was then called over and confirmed what second female saw and they then filled him in on what they had saw before his arrival. All three then began seeing helicopters fly in that direction and circle the object until it was no longer visible.
