Duration:5-10 minutes
15-20 red lights spotted in the sky, which moved rapidly in a linear fashion and formed triangles

December 8, 2012. Approximately 19:30

Driving southbound on Hwy 501 from Conway, SC to Myrtle Beach, SC while crossing the Lake Busbee bridge, my partner and I saw several red lights grouped together in the north east part of the sky.

The lights proceeded to separate and form triangles (obtuse and acute) moving south. There were three lights per triangle. The movements were very rapid and linear. The movement was so fast that the shapes just appeared. There were several triangles formed.

My partner and I pulled over to observe the phenomenon. The lights started to disappear. South of us, two orange lights remained. Then one disappeared and only one was left. It dropped down below the trees, and then it slowly rose in the sky.

From the distance similar to that of a star, it transformed to a blurry white/silver spot. The blur started to drop closer until it was close enough to recognize as a triangle with rounded edges. It was spinning very fast, which created some type of "waves" in the air around it.

When it got to the height slightly lower than a hovering helicopter, it transformed into a bubble/balloon with some type of ventilator on the side. It was falling in a floating fashion similar to that of a plastic bag.

It floated over our heads and towards the woods before reaching Hwy 501 Business.
