Series of lights seen above Topsail Island.While vacationing in Topsail Island, North Carolina, I stepped out to have a smoke and looked to the south towards the pier and noticed a red light in the sky it was high, but not really high. I went in to grab the binoculars and with a closer look, I realized that the red light was now blinking and in a series of patterns that I have never seen on an aircraft. It would disappear, and then reappear a distance of 30 to 40 ft. I went in to get my wife and I grabbed my phone. I started recording, and she looked at it through the binoculars she is a sceptic and I said, "Well, Hun, what do you think of this one?" She replied, "That is weird, really weird" I then grabbed the binoculars from her and began to watch as the object that was heading south stopped doing the blink thing and turned westbound, inland, but there was another green ball of light probably 300 ft above the red object as the lights disappeared behind a house. I went to wait for it on the other side, and when it reappeared, the green light was now about 300 ft below the red light. I watched as it disappeared out of sight. Note: Just before the sighting a marine helicopter flew out to sea and there was no sounds when I experienced my sighting.
