Orange lights near Myrtle Beach S.C. appear at roughly 22:00 from 6/25 - 6/28

The first lights appeared at about 22:00 as two bright orange lights that faded in and out about ten degrees apart and just over the ocean. They reappeared a second time about 15 minutes later in the exact same place. We walked over the dunes to the beach and saw other strange clusters of lights in different locations throughout the sky that were much smaller or distant. The other lights would pulse sometimes in diagonal patterns or seemingly random clusters. Some seemed to move or dart around while others seemed stationary. A military jet flew over the area then returned to wherever it came from. The orange lights reappeared a third time after 30 to 40 minutes with a very dramatic simultaneous pulse in two very distinct "cigar" shapes comprised of about 6 to 8 lights each. A seemingly dramatic decrease in the temperature of the onshore breeze (could have been nervous chills) also occurred at roughly the same time. Just after this final pulse, the activity of the other "satellite" lights increased significantly and then pretty much stopped after about ten minutes.

There were a number of people watching on the beach with us, one person actually made a video recording of the event. He told us that they had witnessed these lights for three nights in a row occurring roughly ten o'clock at night. They were definitely not running lights on aircraft, weather balloons, flares, optical illusions, fireworks, or anything else that we could think of that could have created these lights. I personally found the their appearance to be like the phosphorescence of a firefly or jellyfish, and not like the light from a bulb or something burning. I hope the other people who witnessed this event will also report it.
