Location: Myrtle Beach, SC
Shape: Light
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Two orange lights were spotted near the heart of Myrtle Beach, SC.

I was driving beachbound down US 501 on my way to the gym when I happened to look to my left. I noticed a small, orange light appear in the sky.

After a second or two, another orange light appeared just above it and a bit to the right, forming a small diagonal.

Just as quickly as they had appeared, the first light went off followed by the second. As they disappeared, they seemed to "shudder" off into the dark.

This was the third sighting I've had in the Myrtle Beach area and the second in the last 2 years. Every sighting has been the same in color and shape, from what I can tell. My very first sighting was in September of 2003 and was too close for comfort.

After seeing orb-like orange lights along the coast and then in the Carolina Forest area, I experienced what appeared to be two extremely bright white lights (I've described them as looking like the headlights on a car) hovering silently just above a two-story house, over the driveway. There were six witnesses that night, but only three of us believed what we saw was a UFO.
