Red circular to oval shaped light in night sky of surf city NC 9/1/2012

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.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
