Location: Myrtle Beach, SC
Shape: Triangle
Duration:>1 hour
Triangular shape with arched front white lights and red flashing lights, stationary for over an hour, seen by 2 people 3 miles apart.

Saw a friend's Facebook post asking what were the red lights in sky over Socastee/Burgess, SC.

I went out side and saw stationary lights ..that could be missed as was a bright night but there was lightening off in distance over ocean. A plane flew by at about the same altitude and I could see the difference because it was moving.. The shape was an arched triangle, wide in front with line of whit lights and red flashing in center. There were more lights inside the trianglular shape which is what made it clear.

I wondered if it could be a weather balloon or drone. There was no noise..I came back out 3 times to veiw it and it never moved. There was no sound but it was very big up and impossible to photograph on my iPad or phone..probably would have been quite clear by telescope. Sighting confirmed by my friend.

I also saw much larger clearer triangular moving lights between Pine Bush and Walden in Orange County, NY, in the 80s, confirmed by many people, who also saw it.
