Location: Myrtle Beach, SC
Shape: Light
Duration:30-45 minutes
A series of orange lights appear above the ocean in Myrtle Beach.

At first, a triangle of orange lights appeared in the sky over the ocean. It quickly faded into black. Three people witnessed this formation.

Two more people joined our group, and after explaining to them what we saw, another orange light appeared in the sky. We al witnessed as one by one more lights appeared to the right of it in a straight line. After there were three lights shining at one time, when a new one would shine, the longest burning light would fade out. This went through about 8 or so lights before the lights disappeared, two more people joined our group, totaling the number of witnesses to 7.

After around 7 minutes two groupings of lights appeared in the sky. They repeated the same pattern as the last grouping, however one disappeared quickly while the other lasted for about 15 seconds. Another light appeared yet again a few minutes later, but it disappeared before doing anything. Each sighting moved further and further south down the coastline.
