Reported: 6/10/2014 8:12:50 PM 20:12
Posted: 6/13/2014
Location: Myrtle Beach, SC
Shape: Circle
Duration: 45 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Orange lights over water.

Sitting on 6th floor balcony, watched orange lights about 1.5 miles off shore light up, one at a time in random patterns, then go out after a couple seconds. Thought it might be distress flares but I can't see any boats on horizon.

It is a clear night, but hazy due to humidity. Usually just two or three lights, did see up to 5 at one time together in a cluster only once.

Ruled out fireworks.

Lights didn't move physically, but did appear in two locations approximately 15 miles apart at different times.
