Message: My brother and I were sitting on the balcony at the Carowinds Hotel on the 11th floor and we saw those lights.
I remember them being almost exactly as the writer describes them. I tried to think that they were glowing lights mounted on hot air balloons or helicopters, but I decided that it was impossible for balloons or helicopters to move in the way the lights were moving.
The movements appeared random, from stopped to fast, back and forth, etc. sort of like just “joy riding” in the night sky. I saw the lights fading in and out for over a minute. Then they disappeared, then I saw them again a few minutes later.
They made absolutely no noise and seemed to be 3 or 4 independent “UFOS”. Well, it was weird enough to make me have a vivid dream about “invading UFOs” last night (a month after i saw them).
I confess that do not believe in UFOs. And I still don’t believe. It must have been something man made. Maybe someone playing a hoax on the tourists, but I admit it is an AMAZING hoax!
And I can’t figure out how they are doing it. Maybe someone caught some birds and attached lights to them and then controlled the lights from a hotel balcony somewhere.
Or maybe we ARE being invaded like in my dream last night! Wow. Whatever it was, it was amazing. If anyone figures out what those lights were, please let me know! I am baffled!
