Reported: 7/17/2013 8:08:28 PM 20:08
Posted: 7/22/2013
Location: North Myrtle Beach, SC
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 seconds
Three points of yellow orange light appeared moving horizontally following a loud boom then disappeared.

At 22:30 at night I walked out of my building and heard a loud boom and the sound of a plane overhead. I looked up but saw no planes.

In a few seconds 3 points of yellow orange (fiery) lights appeared in a triangle shape. It or they moved horizontally towards the ocean for about 30 seconds then just disappeared. They showed up from thin air and vanished into thin air.

I could no longer hear the plane sound.

When I went back into my building my roommate said he had heard a "weird" loud boom as well but didn't look out the window.

Outside with me was a man who was about to get into his car. He watched it too then turned, looked at me, shrugged, got into the car, then drove away.

I have heard a boom like that once before when a meteor crashed near my hometown in Pennsylvania. I looked up hoping to catch a glimpse of a meteor but instead I saw something that I couldn't identify.

While watching the sky a few minutes later my roommate and I saw an incredibly fast moving blinking white light moving in the same direction as the three points of light. It moved far faster than the planes I usually see and didn't have the same lights as the planes. Just the white blinking light.
