While fishing off of the surf city pier in surf city NC on 9/1/2012 at approx 2 am I noticed an unusual red circular light in the sky. It almost looked like a red star. I showed it to my wife. It was a red dot to the right side of the moon out over the ocean. The light began to move toward us from right to left and became oval shaped as it moved. The closer it got the light seemed to pulsate. At first it’s movements were very slow then it suddenly sped up to what I can only describe as warp speed and disappeared instantly. I noticed it because it looked like a ball of fire in the sky. It was way to low to be an airplane. As a guesstimate I would say it was maybe a thousand feet above sea level. I kept looking for it and I finally found it to the left side of the moon sitting still as best I could tell. It stayed there for several minutes until it was just gone. I was not able to find it again. There were several people on the pier and I did not ask who saw it besides me but did overhear others talking about the light. It was a clear night sky over the ocean and the waters were quite calm with very light winds. Earlier in the day we did have a scattered shower but the clouds had all cleared away with the exception of a few small stray puffs of white in the sky.
