Strange lights in sky over Pawleys Island

At approx 10pm my husband and I were on the beach at Litchfield resort looking skyward at the stars. Suddenly over the ocean horizon appeared a bright red/orange round glowing object which stayed brightly lit for about 10 seconds before disappearing.

As we stared out over the horizon waiting to see it again, and about 4 min later, Two lights appeared same color/size as the first, next to each other like headlights from a car, they seemed to flicker a few times then disappeared at the same time. They stayed lit about 20 seconds.

About 10 minutes later, as we discussed what it could be, one light, same color appeared, then split in two in a split second, horizontally, into equal sized round glowing objects stayed lit for maybe 15 seconds and disappeared at the same time.... at this point we knew it wasn't flares from a ship because the one light split into two horizontally not falling downward towards the ocean....we watched for about another 10 minutes then left the beach.

Once we returned to our condo about 3/4 of a mile away we took the dogs out for a walk, and while looking skyward and discussing what we had seen, a pattern of five white lights, which looked like stars from the brightness & color, began a flashing pattern. Five lights in no particular arrangement flashing in a sequence... we heard the sound of aircraft but this was no normal plane(s) whatever it was, was flashing separetly and too close for normal multiple aircraft to be next to each other. The flashing lights appeared to stay in the same spot in the sky.

We speculated it could have been some type of military aircraft ( multiple ) flying in some formation. But the rumble we heard was no louder than a normal single plane.

This flashing white light pattern lasted about 1 1/2 minutes.. then they disappeared.

Not into the distance..they disappeared right where they were.
