Round Orange Glowing Lights over Atlantic off shore of North Myrtle Beach SC

DATE OF SIGHTING : 2014-10-08 9:12 P.M.

LOCATION : 4619 SOUTH OCEAN BLVD, NORTH MYRTLE BEACH SC, 29582 : OCEAN FRONT FACING EAST DURATION : 45 – 60 seconds Sat down in chair and orange bright lights over ocean caught my attention Initially, I thought it was an aircraft heading, but I have never observed planes approaching toward building I said to my wife, look at this and started to get up, She seen it also We both headed towards balcony door, and like turning off a light switch, it was gone I Google “strange lights over ocean myrtle beach” and discovered I was not the first I called your organization, spoke briefly with a gentleman who had to leave for a city council meeting, I did not write down the name and now I have forgotten but it may have been Mr. Davenport. This was within minutes of seeing it.

I also contacted WPDE NEWS CHANNEL 15, their response, yeah we get that a lot, it is military maneuvers and he obviously was not interested Today, my wife spoke with 3 other people who observed this as well. They also said that the lights went from ORANGE to WHITE then disappeared. This must have occurred on our quick walk to the balcony Another gentleman (AIRCRAFT MECHANIC) claims he saw them moving around, and then they became stationary, which is how they appeared to me, i.e. stationary.

Distance from shore: it seemed close, maybe less than a mile…but I cannot be sure Size: again, I really cannot be sure. From out distance it was about the circumference of a dime Pattern: 6 orange globes initially, bottom and top ones went out first, sort of in a pattern like below * * * * * *
