What was in the sky that night ? Image Credit: Facebook / Alisa Homewood
A peculiar aerial phenomenon has caught the attention of a local social media group in North Carolina.
The lights, which appeared recently over the state's Indian Trail community to the southeast of Charlotte, were photographed by Alisa Homewood who posted the image up on Facebook.
"Anyone know what these lights were tonight ?" she asked. "No sound at all. They flickered like lanterns, but followed the same exact path up until they disappeared which was odd."
"My initial thought when I saw the lights was it was the helicopters in the distance, but as the lights got closer there was no sound. Then they went straight up into the sky and disappeared."
"I couldn't see anything around the light to suggest they were or were not lanterns, but the light flickered like you'd imagine a lantern would look."
Compounding the mystery was the fact that a cluster of three additional lights surrounded by a blue glow had shown up in the photograph despite not being seen at the time.
"The blue light I didn't notice until after I took the pictures," she said.
"In the sky it did not look blue, it looked like a group of bright lights. I thought it was odd though, that a few people have seen and photographed that same blue-ish grouping of lights."
Indeed, several people on Facebook came forward after seeing her photograph to claim that they had also seen the same thing - sparking considerable debate over what the explanation could be.
As things stand, no definitive answer has been forthcoming.
