|Random lights over the ocean
After dark, we saw random lights in the sky, directly out over the ocean, going on and off and in different places. The lights were bright, yellowish, and looked very similar to the landing spotlight of a large airplane.
We would see anywhere from 1 to 5 at once, in various random positions, as if a formation of many random aircraft were turning spotlights on and off in no particular patterns or arrangments. If I had to guess I'd say they were several miles out to sea, but looked as bright as the ones taking off from the Myrtle Beach airport which were much closer.
This went on for almost 1 1/2 hours.
