orangish yellowish sphere over the ocean at myrtle beach s. c.

My girlfriends and I were sitting on the beach the night before the full moon looking at Mars. While we were talking I looked out over the ocean and saw an orangish yellowish what looked like a star but much larger.It faded out after just a couple seconds.By the time my brain processed what I saw it was gone. I told my friends that I saw a strange light and I wished they had seen it. They laughed at this and we continued talking. After about 10 min. it appeared again this time my friends saw it also. It moved behind a cloud and showed up way to the left of us over the water after about 1 min. It then dissappeared again and showed up after about 30 sec. the first place I noticed it. It disappeared again and we never saw it again. One of my friends said it appeared to have red around the edge of the light. My vision is more distance challanged than hers so I could not dispute that. I reported this on this site on 09/12/03 but for some reason it didnt show up. I was checking the site 09/13/03 to see if anyone else had reported and saw another sighting at the same time but mine wasn't listed. I did notice that we wern't the only ones in myrtle beach that night that saw the strange lights. Would love to know what they were.
