Posted: 8/5/2009
Location: North Myrtle Beach, SC
Shape: Light
Duration:5-10 seconds
In the clear night sky, 3 bright lights appeared in a triangle formation, moved to a line formation, and disappeared to thunder.

We were on vacation in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Two of us were sitting on the balcony of our oceanfront hotel. It was about 23:15 on June 17, 2009, and we were sitting and watching the waves and looking at the stars.

All of a sudden, three bright lights appeared in the sky. We didn't know what they were. They started out in a triangle formation. But after a few seconds, they all moved into a straight line.

The three lights stayed in a line for a few more seconds before disappearing. A loud rumble of thunder followed (it was a clear night, and it was not storming).

The two who saw the lights called the rest of our family out to the balcony, but they were too late. All they heard was the loud rumble of thunder.
