Location: Surfside Beach, SC
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Two bright, stationary lights that would appear side by side for several minutes and then disappear, and reappear a short distance away

My husband and I were on vacation and were watching fireworks being set off by other vacationers on the beach. I noticed two bright lights in the sky that were side by side, similar to headlights. I pointed it out to my husband and he said that he had seen them a few minutes earlier but didn't tell me because he didn't think I would believe him. The lights were brighter than stars or a planet. They did not move or flash. After a few minutes, the light on the left went out followed by the other one a couple of seconds later. We continued to watch the sky and a couple of minutes later the lights reappeared a short distance to the right from where they had been before. They did as before, stayed lit and stationary for a few minutes and then the one on the left disappeared followed by the one on the right. We needed to get back to our baby sitter and child, so I do not know if the lights continued to reappear. These lights did not appear to be an airplane, flare, falling star or meteor. I felt compelled to enter this report after reading an article in our local paper about six other sightings in the same area since August 26th.
