Red/Orange Lights Near Myrtle Beach 10/21/2014

Around 21:30 hours (9:30 p.m.) on Tuesday, October 21, 2014, two reddish-orange colored "fireballs" appeared off the coast of southern Myrtle Beach, SC, around 1.6 miles from the Myrtle Beach International Airport. The objects were different sizes, one larger and the second somewhat smaller. From the shore line, the objects were in an easterly direction over the ocean. At the time of the sighting, the lights did not move at all and no audible noise came from the direction of the objects. There was also no reflection of the objects on the surface of the ocean. Within a minute of the initial sighting, the objects disappeared from view; the larger one disappeared first and then the smaller one. No further lights were seen that night. The next day, several customers of the same hotel reported seeing the same lights around the same time, but none of them were together when the sightings were made. It appears these are the same lights that have been repo! rted in the area of Myrtle Beach and vicinity over the last several years, including numerous sightings in early October of this year.
