SC (WMBF) – Myrtle Beach business owner Gary Travis doesn't know what he
saw off shore one night. But as an experienced pilot, he knew he wasn't
looking at an airplane.
"I'd never seen anything like it," says Travis, "Not in my experience."
Travis shot video of a series of bright
orange lights littering the sky. At first he thought they were landing
lights, but then they started moving all over the place.
"These lights seem to snap on and off like
someone flipped a switch. I even saw them rotate around each other and
that's not going to happen on an airplane."
Reports of UFO sightings like these are
reported fairly frequently in the Grand Strand area. Local paranormal
investigators say it's exciting to check out each claim, but they have
to use a healthy dose of skepticism in their investigation.
"The first thing is credibility," says EJ
Lukacs of the Athena Research Group. He and his wife, Rebeccah
investigate paranormal activity on the Grand Strand. "You need to look
at the caller. What are they saying? What are they claiming?"
And when it comes to reporting claims of
UFO's, there are actually lots of websites and groups that keep track of
sightings throughout the Carolinas. But experts say there's definitely
one group you shouldn't call.
"Contact any paranormal group, they're happy
to help," says Lukacs. "But don't call the police, they've got better
things to do."
