Orange lights in saucer like formation over Myrtle Beach, SC.

My fiancé and I were sitting outside on our balcony having a smoke when I saw a row of 4 orange lights in the distance over his shoulder. I immediately told him to look, because it was very unnatural. As soon as he turned around they all went out, then the one that was furthest to the right went back on. Then the one next to it came back on. Then those 2 went back off and the third one came on and went off. Then the one that was furthest to the left cane on. My fiancé, who always finds a way to explain things rationally was a little shook up. He stood up and started scanning the sky and we were both asking each other what it was and both decided it couldn’t be explained. After about 30 seconds to 1 minute one single light popped on a little ways from where the original lights were, to the right and up higher than before. And it quickly went back off. The four lights that I saw at first appeared to be a part on one single object, they were in a perfect line! and didn’t move at all. It seemed like a saucer type object, but the line of lights was slightly tilted. They were not very far away, they appeared to be sitting about as high as a helicopter flies. If it has been daytime I believe it would have been close enough to make out the details of the object. The lights were a dull orange color, and much bigger and brighter than lights I’ve seen on planes. The light that appeared on its own had me thinking all the light may have been separate objects, but were just in some kind of formation. It’s hard to say. The entire experience was very eerie and unexplainable. Furthermore, this is the second UFO experience I have had in the Myrtle Beach area. The first one was 8 years ago at about 3pm, a bright clear day. I saw 3 huge bright orbs zipping around, almost like they were dancing in the sky. They were turning on and off, appearing and reappearing in different spots in the sky. I was driving when it happened, I pulled over and watch! ed the orbs for about 10 minutes with 4 other people. I was so! concern ed that I drove to the Myrtle Beach airport and reported what I saw. That has always stuck with me, and ever since that day I look up every chance I get. I don’t know what these objects are, but I know they weren’t anything the public has any knowledge of.
