Further Description of Sighting: I, my wife and my father were on the Springmaid Fishing Pier on Sept 19, 2009 at @8:45. The weather was slightly hazy, the surf was extremely rough and there was a strong steady wind. I was facing north looking up the coast toward downtown Myrtle Beach. I noticed a sudden large beam of light coming from a stationary object that was offshore. The beam lasted approximately 45 seconds and then slowly faded out.
The Spring Maid Pier is across the highway from the airport. There were no other aircraft in the air at the time of this sighting. I have fished on the Spring Maid Pier many times at night and have seen aircraft coming and going from many different directions, I have never seen anything like this before.
