Location: Murrells Inlet, SC
Shape: Disk
Duration:About 10 minutes

My wife and I were out on our pontoon boat with some friends and we were about an 8th of a mile past the jettys in the Murrells Inlet, S.C around 2:00pm on a Saturday and the sky was clear and sunny.

I saw a hug bright flash-like hit an oject that I saw in the sky, and it was as a flash bulb from a camera. I looked up and saw the sunlight was reflecting off of a large curcular object in the sky. I thought, what in the world could something so big be in the sky? I knew it had to be a (UFO). It was the size of about 100 feet across, and it shined like polished stainless or aluminum.

The distance from where I was on the boat to where it was sitting in the sky was around 300 to 500 ft. above the marsh, and about 3 miles away from where we were fishing.

I watched the object level up and move due south real slow until it was almost out of sight. The object stopped in the sky and then moved back due north and it passed back infront of me and it was almost straight above me. It moved alittle father north and it took off at a high rate of speed to the north west and I never heard a sound. The sighting lasted about 10 minutes. I also saw 2 black helicopters flying with no markings around the same area. I have seen (UFO's) for over 15 years and I hope we will learn about what we see! Thank you
