My fiance & I where vacationing at North Myrtle Beach, SC. Sitting on the balcony, talking. Right in the middle of a sentence, I saw about 5 lights, light up 1 after another, in a circular pattern. I said "Do you see that" & she did. It disappeared fast, but she was able to catch it. These round orange lights continued to show up all over the sky, only over the ocean, but not above the clouds, or below. They would appear for about 5 seconds on average, then vanish. Right in the middle of the cloud line. This was on the 23rd of June 2014. It lasted about an hour.
On the 24th we saw nothing all night.
On the 25th we saw it again, & this is the night I took the photo. I tried & tried to get them on video, & they weren't showing up, but only had the phone camera. I only got the 1 clean shot, after zooming in. It was like as soon as I put my phone down they would show up on queue. Very frustrating! Same as the previous night, it went on, but on this night until about 1am.
On the 26th was the wildest night. My fiance was joking around, cause I kept saying "There's another, Over there, etc" so she was mocking me, & directly in front of us, still over the water though, was around 20 lights, they did the circular pattern as they lit up, but they were doubled up this time. 1 over top of each other, & lighting up 2 at a time. Then they were all staying lit a little longer than normal. About 3 more appear just left of the 20 or so straight ahead & they floated toward each other. It looked like they joined together right before they disappeared. Again they would show up periodically for about an hour & it was over.
As far as my emotions... When I saw it I automatically thought, that's not normal. During I thought what am I witnessing, & is anyone else seeing this but us? After, I feel like we are not alone!
