North Myrtle Beach Brillant Starburst

I was sitting on the balcony at a resort looking out over the ocean in North Myrtle Beach around 9:30 pm. It was a perfectly clear night, the Moon and North Star seem tiny in comparison to what I witnessed. A Brilliant white starburst flashed on (no sound) high in the sky out in the distance over the ocean starting on left that flashed horizontally from left to right several times leaving a bright white trail in between where it started and stopped that left a starburst on each side when it stopped at the exact same distance each time. I felt as though it was “scanning something.” Then it stopped exactly on the left where it first appeared with the same huge white brilliant starburst light and disappeared as quickly as it appeared. Within seconds a falling star leaving a small burn out trail of red/blue/green appeared out of the same direction caught my attention.
