UFOs in South Carolina

UFOs are being seen in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. "We're all in our 50s, professional people?we're not into hallucinatory drugs or anything like that," says Pam Wingfield. "People look at you funny when you tell them you've seen a UFO. But what we saw was unidentified, it was flying and it was an object."

David Wren writes in the Myrtle Beach Sun News that Pam and two other vacationers from Virginia all saw the orange and yellow glowing spheres. There have been at least six other sightings of yellow, orange or red lights floating near the horizon in the past few weeks.

Lt. Chuck Dunn, of the Myrtle Beach police, says, "We have our beach patrol investigate them for the possibility of distress flares from a large boat. We also call the local military bases to see if they have anything going on. Usually, it's Shaw Air Force Base dropping flares and doing maneuvers."

On July 6, Linda Moore caught a UFO on video from her home in South Carolina. UFO researcher Brian Vike writes that her husband noticed a bright object high in the sky and called to her to come and see it. She took video of the object with her camcorder, which has a 500 digital zoom to film it. As she zoomed in on it, the object changed shape. She recorded it for about three minutes.

Vike says, "From what I saw on film, there was certainly something very strange flying over the skies of South Carolina on that day, and the Moores were two of the lucky ones to have not only seen such a sight but also to have filmed it. The object was noticed flying from a north east direction, perhaps from over the coastline.

"I was fascinated by what I viewed on the tape. When the object first appears in the clear blue sky, the witness has the camera zoomed out and catches an extremely bright white, round object. As she tracks it slowly moving in the sky, Mrs. Moore zooms in and catches what appears to be a mushroom shaped object. It takes on a dome shape with something in the center. Whatever it is inside seems to hold a number of colors, ranging from a pink, green and blue and it seems to be shining, or maybe the sun is reflecting off it.

"An interesting part of the film is a portion of a tree which is between the object and the witness. With the object at a good distance away, the tree and its leaves provide a good reference point which allows us to gauge not only the direction but also how fast the object is moving, plus how it travels through the air. It moves down and has a similar appearance to how one would see a jellyfish swimming through the ocean.

"As the object drifts slowly downwards the top of the dome appears to bulge in and out slightly at times. At one point it briefly comes to a complete stop, and then with ease it floats back up a short distance and stops for a split second and moves down and to the right. It stops again and starts back up.

"It seems to travel very smoothly?no jerking or erratic movements can be witnessed. Again it climbs in altitude and begins to descend once again and at this point a couple of the leaves are almost blocking the view of the object. However, in the gaps between the leaves it can still be seen very easily and then it appears in the open with nothing blocking the view.

"I ran the tape back a few frames to where the [UFO] was still behind the leaves. I then played the tape at the normal speed and was surprised to see how quickly it was able to move after it came out from behind the foliage. After a short burst of speed, not moving very far in the sky, it again seems to slow and maneuvers around in a tight space. Mrs. Moore at this point catches a great shot of something which is sitting near the bottom, but inside of the mushroom. Again the colors from something that is inside this cloud can be seen shining very brightly. The object seems to just hang there in one spot."
