Red Flashing Lights Over the Atlantic

It was about 10:00 PM on tuesday august 29, my elderly mother had told me to come outside on the porch, and to look out above the ocean, she had told me that she had seen an orange-red lighted ball flash on for about two seconds then flash off almost as if it were a rotating beacon on a plane. She said she had seen the flashes of light the night before but did not want to tell me, because I might think she was insane. so i stood out looking over the ocean for about 10-15 min. then i saw what apeared to be a redish flash of light come on then go off within a second or so, i at first thought it was a plane, then i saw the same light apeare a little bit to the left of the last light then fade out now i thought it was just a plane moving to the north, but within a few minutes i saw the same light again in the exact same spot as the first light to the south.(let me add that the ball of lights themselfs do not move) next i saw someting that really freeked me out, the light to the north lit back up with three other lights almost apearing out of eachother. then i thought how the hell can a plane move from the south to the north then back to the south and then back to the north giving birth to two other objects all within a few minutes. this sighting of either a ufo or a plane realy scared me and my mother. me and my family have been visiting myrtle beach for years and now own a house on the beach an we both have never seen anything quite like this, and by reading other reports of these sightings in the area we would love to know what caused these flashes of lights over the ocean? we have asked family members that have spent their lives in the airforce and do not know of any aircraft that can emite these types of lights. Please, any type of explination would be helpful.
