Suddenly appearing red-orange light flares up large, then suddenly disappearsTwo, adult observers were on the beach at approx 36°35′16″N 75°53′3″W (Google map ref 36.624316, -75.888340). Night was illuminated by full moon. Slight, hazy overcast with very few stars visible. Sighting was of lights approx a mile out to sea to the SE near the horizon (approx Google map ref 36.621515, -75.856065. Lights appeared somewhat larger than aircraft lights or stars and shined steadilly, without blinking. A single red-orange tinged white light would suddenly appear, move steadily and horizontally for approx 5 sec, then suddenly disappear. After approx 5 min, a similar light would appear, move, then disappear. After approx 3 such episodes, the appearing light would suddenly flare up to approximately 5 times its original diameter, then suddenly disappear. When flared, the light was clearly in white, red, and orange horizontal segments. During the last episode, a smaller-sized light, while moving northward and paralle! l to the horizon, seemed to divide into two equally sized lights, then again into three equal parts, with all three moving apart from each other until they all suddenly and simultanerously disappeared. About the same time, a large and relatively slow-moving meteor appeared directly overhead, moving sea-ward until it broke up and dissipated. There seemed to be a non-verbal, telepathic, reciprocal awareness of presence. Note: This sighting was in the vicinity of two major US military installations: The Norfolk Naval Shipyard and the Naval Air Station Oceana.
