Not at all. It was not a bright blinking light. It was a fairly large ball of light. Like a mix of orange, red and yellow. It did not pulsate or have a flicker. It was like looking at campfire from about 50 yards away. The only reason I would rule out Chinese lanterns is because of it disappearing and reappearing 3 times and then nothing. Would a lantern light go out and then ignite itself 3 times? I'm not real familiar with the lanterns, but I don't think that's how it works. Another thought would be possibly light from a lighthouse, but why would we see it only 3 times?

I was on Edisto Island, SC in August of 2012. While I was down there many reports came in of UFO sightings near Myrtle Beach. I never did see anything down on Edisto, but Myrtle was a hot-spot for sightings last summer.
We go every other year and I always have my eyes toward the sky when I'm down there.

The South Carolina Forestry Commission says a fire that burned more than 800 acres of Horry County land was caused by a special type of floating candle lantern. The July 3 fire is completely contained, but continues to burn along the coast in Horry County.

Nice! The photos you have look sort of similar to my experience, except it was just one large object. Very interesting.
