|5 Yellowish craft overflew Murrells Inlet this evening
At approximately 9:35 this evening I observed 4 glowing objects coming from S, moving N/NE, traveling at between 70-200-mph at about 600-800 feet in altitude and climbing over Murrells Inlet South Carolina. (Highway 707 at around Tournament Blvd.
The objects were flying in pairs of two. They appeared to be parasails with lights around them, but they were moving too fast and climbing too fast to be a parachute. They were arc shaped and looked to be 40-50 across.
When I first observed they were slow, then within a matter of 15 seconds sped up and flew into a cloud later at a high rate of speed. There was no sound associated with these objects. Zero sound.
I thought they were flares initially but I’ve never seen flares slow down, speed up and accelerate as these did.
The lights associated with these craft was a yellowish haze with stronger lights in the center trailing edge. No blinking lights observed.
This is one of the strangest sightings I have ever seen. I am a pilot and flew military aircraft in the 70’s. I also fly radio control aircraft and sailplanes.
This occurrence does not match up with anything I’ve ever seen.
One other identical craft over-flew about 30 seconds after the first 4 craft flew over. Total of 5 craft.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, shortly after his sighting, and we found him to be quite eloquent and sober-minded, in his description of the event. We suspect that he is a superlative witness. PD))
