Description of Area / Surroundings

there is a nuclear powerplant in brunswick county, but all the military and powerplant officials denied having anything to do with it, and showed the news channels that they had no procedures planned.

Full Description & Details

All over the news channels here in brunswick county there are multiple different reportings of what scientist call 'seneca guns' which are loud mysterious booms that aren't earth quake related or military related. around 1 am on December 9, 2011 many people heard multiple loud booming noises, which startled many. it almost felt like an earthquake. shook houses, and had a 4-5 minute rumbling noise that sounded like thunder rolling across the sky, or a jet passing by. but it rumbled louder than thunder, and didn't fade like a jet would. after the noises, people ran outside frantic and saw what it looked like 'flares in the sky', but many people who lived on military bases and have seen military flares said it wasn't like anything they've ever seen. it started out as one bright light. it blinked a few times, and then faded. and reappeared in a different place. and then another one popped up beside it, they both blinked in like a pattern and disappeared again. then 3 of the strange lights popped up in a different area a little west of the original lights and a 4th light popped up south of the 3 lights. and they all blinked and disappeared and never reappeared. the military here claims they had nothing to do with it, but there are reporting of people seeing military fighter jets flying towards where the lights were just shortly after the lights disappeared. and a man on wect's facebook page reported seeing the strange lights in the same spot just 2 nights before, but at that time he said it looked like 2 military fighter jets seemed to be shooting at the object and it burst into flames and disappeared. nobody know what this phenomenon is. my cousin was down on oak island for vacation back in may, and they also reported seeing strange lights out over the ocean that matched the description of these lights, and also had no alibi from the military. aliens or what?

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

i honestly have no idea. it was night time, so i know it wasnt birds, or clouds, or balloons. airplanes and jets don't flash on and off like these lights did, and they couldn't move as fast as the lights did.

Witness Background

i'm in a highschool, on the verge of graduating.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

i've always believed in extra terrestrial beings, if there is life on our planet, and in our oceans, why wouldn't there be life on other planets? i've always been interested in it. i've done a lot of research and have found no other logical explanations.
