|White lights, in unison, left to right, not change in velocity, direction, or speed, much too large for a normal A/C
Heading East on the highway, about 60 degrees above eye level, well above any city lights, there were 5 consecutive large, white lights, perfectly in unison. From left to right, one would flash brilliantly with a slow burn on, then a slow burn off. then the second, then the 3rd and so on... these lights appeared to be perfectly level during the pattern, with no direction changes, nor any "running lights" to speak of, just pure white lights. Night background was dark, and although there is an public (MYR) airport in the area, object, would have had to landed sharply and aggresively to even possibly be a plane, or helicopter.
I worked Sikorsky Jayhawks for 3 years and my wife and I both spent time in the service underway on the open seas with plenty of nights on lookout watch and have NEVER seen anything close to resembling this.
