More orange lights over Myrtle Beach

My wife and I were sitting on our front porch, about five blocks from the beach. I noticed several yellowish or orange lights in the sky to the east, which would place them over the ocean. I drew my wife's attention to the lights just before they blinked out. She did get to see them, saying that there were four lights configured so that they appeared to be the headlights of a car.

A similar sighting was reported to NUFORC on August 31, also in Myrtle Beach. The NUFORC note suggested they could be landing lights. As a resident of Myrtle Beach, I can state that these lights were the wrong color and were stationary, whereas aircraft landing lights are a brilliant white and slowly move toward the airport.

Our sighting was several days after that other one, and yet the similarity is striking. As to our backgrounds: my wife works in law enforcement and I am a teacher.
