Location: Pawleys Island, SC
Shape: Light
Duration:one hour
Orange glowing lights appearing & then fading away/White blinking objects moving across the sky freely

We saw bright orange lights appear - they seemed to be on fire or ignited. There were organized in a horizontal pattern. First there would be one light, then another. They were larger than stars, and were fully visible for about 3 full seconds before dimming and fading out. We saw a few formations of these lights, about 5 minutes apart and in all different areas of the sky. In total, I think we saw about 5 different appearances of these lights over the course of an hour.

We also witnessed flickering/blinking lights directly after seeing the orange lights. These seemed to be moving independently and would cross the sky back and forth with no pattern at all. They seemed to be moving faster than an airplane, and had the ability to change direction or stay in one place. The flickering of these objects was white and seemed to have no constant, regular pattern.

Although we were trying to get a better look at both of these strange lights through use of binoculars, they were both visible to the naked eye. This was the third night in a row I had witnessed the orange glowing lights, but the first time I had seen the blinking lights.
