Characteristics: There were lights on the object
3 orange lights over ocean Myrtle Beach SC

April 17, 2019 about 10:15pm I walked from our hotel to the beach and began to observe 3 orange lights hovering over the ocean close to the shore, almost directly in front of me. The lights would tend to turn on/off 1 at a time, were perfectly spaced out between each other and in a perfectly straight line. The lights would fade when they went out. I then noticed 1 orange light much further down the beach that was turning on and off at the same time the 3 orange lights were turning on and off - looked to be communicating with each other. Saw this happen 3 different times with the lights going out for a minute or 2 before doing the on and off sequence again. Saw the lights appear slightly further down the beach the 3rd time indicating it moved while the lights were out.. The last time I saw the lights they appeared much further out into the ocean far away from the beach which indicated to me it had left the area. There were never any sounds coming from the lights, just hovering perfectly still. Because this was against the black sky, it was hard to tell what was around the lights. At one point, I felt I saw an outline of an object.

Here is a link to a video that another person posted from that evening - this is the UFO that I saw and I can say is a legit video: My view of the object was much better than what is in this video, I was on the beach and in front of the object that was out just a bit over the ocean.
