Too fast to photograph: Ultra-speed day-glow ‘Skootnik’ observed in night surf, January 2015 – Myrtle Beach… UFO, USO, drone, what?

This weird colorful object appeared suddenly and unexpectedly on a dark, chilly, and foggy evening in January 2015, right after New Year’s, just a few yards off shore in the surf. We shot some footage quite precariously off the balcony of one of Myrtle Beach’s oceanfront hotels beachside. Fortunately, we captured three single ‘frames’ in sequence that we’ve attempted to photograph and post below. Unfortunately, the object appears sideways in all three. As it was moving much too fast to view in video format, we are also hoping to extract single photos from the original footage.

The beach was totally deserted, and the fog was so thick in the early hours of the evening that it contained large drops of condensation, yet this thing was zipping around in the dark right out in front of the hotel – first, there were two small, bluish-green ‘lights’ that moved back and forth above the waves almost like a ‘ski-do.’

The image below is of the first frame. Note, all that we caught was a blue-green trail.

A few moments later, the lights appeared to ‘submerge,’ and to change shape and color, and a ‘day-glow’ yellow/orange/red ‘object’ rose out of the water. It was impossible to tell its actual size, form or definition due to its speed, the darkness and the weather conditions, but it rotated unmistakably like a top, and emanated tiny sparkling lights that seemed to remain ‘connected,’ before it suddenly shot off down the beach, heading south.

The image below is of the second frame just as the object emerged from the water.

 

We were curious to know if anyone else has seen something similar, especially since we’ve heard others in this neck of the woods talk about objects that appear to be flying in and out of water. We thought it might be a lighted drone, but couldn’t imagine what any drone would be doing out there under such conditions, especially one that could also navigate lightning speeds at 90 degrees.

We called it a Scootnik. (Perhaps, Spooknik will do just as well.)

UFO sightings over Myrtle Beach, SC – Video & Photos, January – March, 2014

UFO Myrtle Beach, SC - Feb. 23, 2014

The above shot of a ‘shape-changing’ object was taken at Myrtle Beach, SC around 10:00 p.m. on February 23rd, 2014. The object was moving directly overhead and could be seen with the naked eye. Several others were viewed at points nearby in the night sky. Compare this with the video analysis (below) done by researcher Will Smith of UFOinvestigations.org of an object that appeared over the ocean at North Myrtle Beach, NC, on January 15th, 2014, filmed by researcher Ken Hurt. While the image above is not as clear, (and the orb is white with a dark center, not orange), both looked and behaved in a similar manner – morphing, pulsating, emitting smaller objects, and at times changing color. 

According to locals, such shapes have been appearing on a regular basis, in fact, a number of them have recently been filmed by sky watchers in the coastal South/North Carolina area.

(Note: Researcher/narrator Will Smith accidentally calls the location Myrtle Beach, ‘Florida,’ but the error has been corrected in the YouTube description, and the footage is well worth viewing!)

BELOW: We photographed another such object at 3:00 a.m. on March 1st, 2014. Again, the image not very clear, but the ‘color’ is certainly unique.
