One other witness and I saw three bright orange orbs about 3-4 minutes apart each visible for 20-30 seconds. I witnessed from the north end of Carolina Beach Island looking south towards Kure Beach. They were floating about 1/2 mile off of the cost of Kure Beach. I estimate 500-1,000 ft elevation. After watching doe 20-30 seconds each, I flashed a green laser around them and they disappeared within a second. This occurred 3 times about 3-4 minutes apart.
