Message: 09/02/08 and 09/03/08 – Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
My wife and I were sitting on our hotel balcony at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on the night of September 2, 2008. At 10:20 PM we saw a single large round orange gold light appear in the sky and then disappear. We saw another single large round orange gold light appear and disappear, then another single large round orange gold light appear and disappear. All three of the lights appeared next to each other in a straight line and each one stayed in the sky for about 10 seconds. There was no sound.
At 10:25 on this same night, we saw nine large round orange gold lights appear in the sky, all at the same time in three separate triangles, just as an airliner was ascending into the sky across the ocean from the Myrtle Beach airport. These nine lights stayed in the sky for about 10 seconds. What an awesome sight! There was no sound.
A few minutes later, I saw a police officer drive his vehicle onto the beach just below our hotel. I decided to go and tell the police officer what we had just seen. I approached the police officer and asked him if he was here because of the orange gold lights in the sky and he said yes. He told me that the police department had received a large number of phone calls from people who had seen what we had seen.
The police officer told me that the Myrtle Beach police department has received phone calls all summer from people who have seen these orange gold lights. The police officer said that the police department had contacted the Coast Guard and the Air Force to see if they knew anything and they both said that they did not know anything.
The next evening, September 3, 2008, we were sitting on the balcony hoping to see the orange gold lights again. At 10:09 PM, three large round orange gold lights appeared in the sky one at a time, for about ten seconds each, in a straight line, just like they had appeared the night before. There was no sound.
We came on this beach trip actually hoping to see these orange gold lights, because we had seen them on our beach trip in May 2008. On May 1, 2008 we were sitting on our hotel balcony (same hotel as this trip), and at 8:40 PM we saw six orange gold lights appear in the sky, in two triangles. These lights stayed in the sky for about 10 seconds and there was no sound.
Seeing these lights is very exciting and amazing! It was a very awesome experience, especially to have seen these lights on three separate nights.
