I just watch Nights in Rodanthe last night since I was visiting the area when they filmed it and in the movie it was explain the yellow glow in the sky close to dusk is some kind of mysterious lights and I heard of this before anyone have a clue? Sorry for being so vague

Is this the same thing as the "green flash?" I have heard that referred to, but have never seen it. There is a lot of info about it on wikipedia and I think a video on youtube about it......since we face the east, I'm more into watching the sunrises

I have never seen it as I am generally on the opposite side watching the gorgeous sunsets over the sound. Thanks for the info but that name didnt ring a bell.

The military will drop flares with parachutes and they glow orange yellow very brightly in the sky....Sometimes they will drop many in a row and it looks like several lights equally spaced apart...I have seen it many times myself...Maybe this is what you saw.

I found out they are called Teach's Lights (blackbeard) but Im having issue googling it. All I keep coming up with is the history of blackbeard and not the lights. Im fasinated to figure this out before I visit in October
