Several orange, sphere shaped UFOs appeared off the coast of Pawleys Island, SC on 06/08/2011

We were sitting outside our beach house looking over the ocean. Initially, we saw one orange/red light that began as a glow and got brighter until fading to dim and then disappearing completely. It was a circular/sphere shape.

Quickly, another light (that looked exactly the same) appeared just to the north of it at the same altitude and faded away as well.

After several minutes, more lights appeared simultaneously in the same general vicinity, all displaying the same characteristics. The lights appeared on and off again across about a 40 mile stretch of ocean. At most, there were about 12 lights at once.

Finally, four smaller, white, blinking lights appeared in a straight line and traveled from off shore, over the beach and continued until they were out of our line of vision behind us.

Just minutes after that, the orange/red lights appeared back out over the water in front of us and were brighter than they had been previously. They also appeared bigger and then faded completely.

We used binoculars throughout the viewing duration but were unable to identify any distinct characteristics of the UFOs other than what is listed above.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and she sounded to us to be quite eloquent, serious-minded, and sincere. Please see other report from North Carolina for the same time and date. PD))
