Reported: 8/4/2004 5:22:17 PM 17:22
Posted: 8/11/2004
Location: Garden City Beach, SC
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
A series of eight orange-red lights, four horizontal, and 2 sets of 2 vertical, lasting 15 to 30 seconds each

A total of eight orange-red lights, about 10 degrees above the horizon, appeared to be one to two miles off-shore.

At first, one light appeared, then a second in a vertical line above the first. Once both lights were illuminated, they lasted 15 to 30 seconds and went out at the same time. A second pair of lights appeared in the same manner two to three minutes later, at some distance south of the first pair; the bottom light appearing first, followed a few seconds (perhaps five to ten) later by the top. A third set of four lights appeared a few minutes later, all in a horizontal line equidistant from each other (see the reported Myrtle Beach sighting dated 01/17/04...very similar description). All four lights illuminated simultaneously and extinguished simultaneously.

Each of the three sightings were separated by two to three minutes.
