Location: Myrtle Beach, SC
Shape: Oval
Duration:15 minutes
Two red ovals moving in irregular movements in a south-east approach.

My friend and I were staying in a Hotel in Myrtle Beach South Carolina on vacation. We were in a beach front room, so our balcony was overlooking the ocean. We were out on our balcony (on the 18th floor) because we were smoking a cigarette and we were trying to see lightning as it hit the ocean. It was a stormy night but we could see some stars still.

So my friend looked off to the left of our balcony, so he was looking north, and he spotted these 2 red-orange ovals in the sky. Then he pointed them out to me. They were fairly small just a little bigger than the stars, we couldn't hear any noise from them. They were traveling from North to South (from the left to the right of our balcony). It was hazy out, so they were not bright at all. Kind of a dim red orange glow. At first I thought they were just airplanes, but they moved in an irregular way. They moved very slowly, and the did not stay the same distance from each other. They did somewhat of a dance around each other, getting closer and further from each other.

We watched them do this slow dance all the way across our view of the sky, but as they moved south they also moved out over the ocean further (east). Eventually, about 10 or 15 minutes after we first spotted them, they faded too far into the horizon to see.
