Duration:1 minute day, 2-3 minutes
Multiple unexplained lights

On the day's of October 7th and 8th, my sister, mother, and myself were vacationing at Myrtle Beach, SC.

At approximately 21:30 my sister and myself were on our balcony of our hotel room. When suddenly a bright light appeared out of nowhere. Then a second light "flashed on" beside the first. Then a third flashed on, followed by a fourth. These lights looked like no more than 40 feet from shore distance wise, the height of which they were at was probably no more than 700 feet at the highest.

My first thought was they had to be flares, but they would "flash" on and off and never descended from their altitude. They stayed for approximately 2 minutes or so the first night. The second night at about the same time approximately the same light appeared this time much farther out. This was followed by the same "flashing" on and off pattern from the night before. After a minute or so they faded out, only to reappear much closer...one at a time. The same "flashing" fo! rmation continued for approximately 35 seconds or so. At this point they disappeared again, only to reappear at a third sight much farther out but parallel to their original point approximately 1400 to 2000 feet off shore. The height remained about constant from both days. This time though, my sister, my mom and I all witnessed the lights.

I have done some research on these Myrtle Beach lights, and have seen some video. The video's I have seen are the exact same lights me and my family witnessed.
