Five orange orbs over the Atlantic Ocean at Myrtle Beach.

I was on the beach, deep in thought when I saw a total of 5 orange orbs, pretty far out over the ocean. I am an avid sky watcher and weather spotter for the national weather service... I was very curious after the first one. I paid closer attention, to see if there were any sparks or tails, which there were none. At this point I determined these were not fireworks or falling stars.

First single ball, then approx. 30 seconds later, another about 4 oclock from the first and 3 inches away by the naked eye. The third was smaller than the rest, back to back with the 2nd and was very close, slightly right and lower. (5 oclock) Approx. 45 sec-1 min went by. The 4th was farther left than the 1st by 2 inches. 15 - 20 sec. later the 5th orb appeared 7 inches away from the 4th, farthest right of all. (4 oclock) I would consider this to be a distorted Z pattern... shorter and wide.
