BERLIN, MD - 1/4/07 - We received reports this morning of large bright oval lights hovering and moving across areas offshore the Assateague Island National Seashore. The initial report stated that the lights were noticed around 12:45 am Thurday, Jan 4th, 2007.
The source was a resident who noticed the lights from his home located approximately 3 miles from the National Park boundary. He drove to the area nearest the lights and attempted to capture video of the phenomena. His statement was that the video did not capture the magnitude of light that was generated.
"...the video needs to be enhanced due to some interference that was distorting the image. You could make out a definite shape...disc like and moving fast along the horizon. On two occasions there were 2 discs that would appear and move together. The light was moving north to south and back and was over the ocean."
Attempts to verify the report were unsuccessful, though a nearby resident mentioned that her dogs were barking around the same time of the reports. She stated that this was rare for her dogs even when wildlife were in the area.
Authorities in Berlin, MD and the U.S. Coast Guard did not return inquiries.
