My wife and I were on the back porch facing NE 3 1/2 blocks from the Atlantic Ocean in North Myrtle. Out of my peripheral I noticed the orange flickering object traveling up and down in a SE direction. It seemed to waver or float like a leaf floating, but traveling South for sure over the Atlantic Ocean. I grabbed my wife’s I phone 5 to video. I only got three seconds of video before the phone seemed to get stuck. It shut off and I was able to later to power the phone up and see that it did capture 3 seconds of video.
After the video clip ends, it wavered up and down still traveling in a South to South East direction. We were able to follow it for nearly 30 seconds. The orange flickering object seemed to flicker at a slower rate and finally twinkled out into darkness. We were still in the field of view to follow the object, but it flickered out.
The object seemed to look like something struggling to stay in flight, it appeared to be burning or flickering.
We often see strange lights and object over the ocean. This was different from what we have seen in the past.
