Cylinder-shaped UFO seen over Myrtle Beach

On September 1st, 2015, a person living near an airport in Myrtle Beach (South Carolina) has seen a very mysterious cylinder-shaped UFO in the sky during night until sunrise.

Witness report:

Sitting on my back porch at my apartmen, getting ready for work. I looked up at the sky, not thinking much about it, thinking it was a plane passing, considering I live near an international airport.

Look back ten minutes later while finishing my morning cigarette, but the object stayed still for over a half an hour. Three lights one on the left side, middle and right flashing consistently. Object was in airspace that a plane would fly maybe a small bit higher.
