Location: Myrtle Beach, SC
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 minute
Triangular Fire object slowly lifts off the coast, then moves south at a steady rate of speed while increasing altitude.

Fire triangular object slowly lifts off ground (I noticed it when object was approx 200 feet off ground) on the shore of the Atlantic, then at a steady rate of speed, moves in a southern direction all while going farther up in the night sky. Did not shoot across the sky, but was going as fast as a plane does.

Thought it may have been a firework at first, then I thought it could of been a hot air balloon... I have ruled both out and am left with it being unexplained.
