Orange Orbs appear and fade over ocean in Myrtle Beach.


I was looking out over the Atlantic ocean, so East. The orbs were high in the sky, if you were looking at the moon in the sky at the time they were southeast of that. I would say at least a 40 degree angle from sea level.

An orange orb light faded into view over the sky. As it brightened, another orb brightened to the left of it, spaced out by about half the size of the moon in the sky. When the other orb brightened the first orb faded systematically. This happened several times for a total of 4 orbs that I observed.

When the last one faded, no other lights were visible in the sky. It was a clear night and no aircraft were noticeable. The spacing of the lights would have made it inpossible to be a normal aircraft. They were too far apart and they were stationary. So while one was fading in one spot, one was brightening in another.

Another friend saw at least two of them fade in and out. Same thoughts, orange orbs that faded and brightened one after the other. The whole time was only 5-10 seconds.
Thank you for the quick response! I have never seen anything like this before, and I am not sure if others may have see this or may be able to explain this type of lighting in the sky.
