Occurred : 10/23/2008 21:00 (Entered as : 102308 21:00)
Reported: 4/30/2009 11:12:31 AM 11:12
Posted: 5/12/2009
Location: North Myrtle Beach, SC
Shape: Light
Duration: One hour
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Random lights over the ocean

After dark, we saw random lights in the sky, directly out over the ocean, going on and off and in different places. The lights were bright, yellowish, and looked very similar to the landing spotlight of a large airplane.

We would see anywhere from 1 to 5 at once, in various random positions, as if a formation of many random aircraft were turning spotlights on and off in no particular patterns or arrangments. If I had to guess I'd say they were several miles out to sea, but looked as bright as the ones taking off from the Myrtle Beach airport which were much closer.

This went on for almost 1 1/2 hours.
