We were vacationing at holden beach nc sitting on upper balcony listening to pod casts. we seen two commercial planes flying along coast. we used an app to determine this. my son said what it that. a third object came into view and passed the two commercial planes in sky. it then don a 180 degree turn and slowed to almost a stop out over the ocean. it still looked like a distant plane. then it changed into a single amber light. it then changed into two amber lights. it then changed to three and back to one. it then just disappeared. several people saw this but i’m only speaking for me and my son.
