Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The first object was, what appeared to be, the size of a very large airplane with 3 bright white lights at the corners. The later V formation lights were a few miles wide and high.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
The plane was maybe a mile or so away, low enough that it looked like it was preparing to land.
Description of Area / Surroundings
It was a quiet night at the beach with very little activity. There is a military base and airport nearby, but it disappeared before landing.
Full Description & Details
I was vacationing in Folly Beach SC, sitting on the porch with my husband at an oceanfront beach house, looking out at the ocean. It was a very calm night with almost no breeze. I noticed what I thought was an aircraft coming in for a landing. Being a former flight attendant, I watched it for a long time thinking it was an odd flight plan, and I noticed the lights on the corners were incredibly bright. As it got closer and closer I wondered if it was military or private because it seemed to be very large and triangular in shape. I didn't think much about it, but after about 10 minutes of it coming closer to the coast, it was maybe a mile away, and it disappeared instantly.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No, especially with the explosion and synchronized lights. Also the lights were very bright but not blinding. I've never seen light that looked like that.
My husband and I both have masters degrees. I'm a licensed psychotherapist and have 3 children. I don't want any attention, it's just something I've thought about for awhile and wish I had reported it back then.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have always been skeptical, but open to other possibilities.
