|I observed orange lights off of the coast.
I was on vacation in Myrtle Beach this week and I had stepped out of my hotel room which faced the beach. It was a nice night, a bit windy and cool with a full moon with increasing cloud cover. From the balcony on the fifth floor room, I observed as the clouds began to obscure the moon a orange spherical light appeared from the cloud cover drifting against the wind to the east. A second one appeared as the first one blinked out. The second one stayed in place and faded out. Another light appeared still drifting to the east and blinked out. Finally three lights blinked on simulatneously in a staggered line formation and a fourth one appeared to the left of the formation before "zooming" into line with the others. The formation tightened up and I left the balcony to get my wife outside to see this. When we both came back out, there were no lights. We waited for 15 minutes but nothing else appeared.
