Jack said that he first saw some bright lights in the night sky appearing one by one and then disappearing slowly. He kept his camera moving and continued to observe the night sky. A few minutes later, he saw the same lights in a different spot of the sky and then a third time shortly after the second. He witnessed these lights in less than 20 seconds in each spot and then were disappeared.
After 30-40 minutes of seeing the lights, a cop car approached him on the beach and the officers started to ask questions to him. They asked what time he had stayed there and if he saw anything odd. After telling the officers that he witnessed something strange earlier, they mentioned about fireworks or flares above the ocean. Jack said that the officers seemed not sure about the identity of the lights and told him to call them if he saw anything else.
Amazing images were posted by Jack to his Facebook page and his followers immediately offered their speculations including Chinese lanterns, military flares, drones and UFOs. Jack ruled out the plane or helicopter possibility and there were comments from people who claimed they had witnessed similar unusual lights in New Jersey. Until today, the lights captured by Jack in photos remain a mystery.
