Further Description of Sighting: Sitting on balcony at Comfort Inn, Myrtle Beach on Oct 13, 09. Sky was dark between 8&9 pm and weather was clear. One light appeared first and glowed for about 5 sec. Thought it was a flare at first. A few minutes later a second appeared followed by 3 or 4 more simultaneously.
This went on for approx an hour (maybe 30 in total) and I watched through binoculars. They moved north up the coast and then came back to the south. There was no visible trail from a flare cannon and no running lights to indicate a boat….plus a flare would burn longer.
If I had to guess, they were somewhere between 2-5 miles out and at least several thousand feet in the air; some being higher or closer than others, but there was really no point of reference.
End of sighting………I don’t do this for a living and have never seen anything like this before. Thanks.
