Further Description of Sighting: Woke up around 3:50am on 9/16/10 and went out onto our front deck with my coffee. First I saw a dim red light travel at a high rate of speed from over the ocean towards land and disappear. Then about 2 minutes later, saw a similar light go towards the same direction with the same speed, and this time it continued until I could no longer see it over the roof of the house.
I continued to watch the sky, and saw a white light do a loop over the ocean then shoot very fast towards inland and disappear. The Red light re-appeared about a dozen times over the next 2 hours, traveling too fast to be a plane, and too far away to be a plane. Also saw what appeared to be an airplane after the last sighting of these “shooting stars”, and the lighting on the plane and the distance in the sky was very different from the red, orange, yellow, and white lights previously seen.
I have seen a meteor shower before, and this was not a meteor shower, but more like UFO type lights that were flying quickly across the sky, almost circling around the Surfside Beach area. They continued until I could no longer see the stars this morning. Very unusual- unlike anything I have ever seen before… Hope to get up early again tomorrow and see if I can see them again. Also, others in my family witnessed these light anomalies with me this morning, so I know I wasn’t just seeing things.
