On July 19, 2012 8 of use went back to the beach at Pawley's Island, SC around 10:00pm, We again saw intense lights out over the ocean. Usually only 1 at a time. However, once there were 4 in a row. They went out after about 10 seconds and then came back on 10 seconds and then came back on 10 seconds later. This time they were closer together. They went out and came back on again but this time there were only 2 and they were closer together than any of them had been before. Over 30 minutes we saw about 10 of them.
There were no aircraft in the area of the lights. They were due east of the beach and about 25 degrees above the horizon. I would estimate that they were 5-10 miles off shore. There was a southeastern breeze of about 15 mph.
