Brilliant White falling object over Coastal South Carolina.

Sighted a streaking brilliant white fireball traveling from Southeast to Northwest directly overhead. As the object traveled it grew in size and intensity over a period of approximately 3 to 4 seconds. The object culminated its path by flashing out and sending what looked like orange embers falling to Earth.

Approximately 15 to 20 seconds following the flash out a series of low rumbling explosions and streaking sound could be heard. Given the time, sound, proximity, and path it is assumed that the sound was complicit with the object. Considering the length of the event no media exists.


Witness elects to remain semi-anonymous; provides little contact information. Probably not a meteor, if the event lasted for 30 seconds. PD
