“Super bright…this long line…then it went into this loopty-loop,” said Carie Matthews, a North Shore resident.
“It was just a zigzag…almost looked like letting air out of a balloon,” Bryan Cuelho from Waialua said.
Xander Amatore, 10, from the North Shore said, “It was like a streak of light. It was white. It was really bright. It went kind of in a loop, but as it went down it was in a zigzag.”
Honolulu police said they’ve received numerous calls, but don’t believe the lights are tied to any kind of Military activity. A U.S. Navy spokesman said he is not aware of any Military operations that coincide with the light.
