Bright orange light seen hovering in sky, disappears and then reappears

We were standing on the front lawn of Union Presbyterian Church off Hwy 377, facing NW (towards Kingstree, SC) when a bright orange light appeared in the sky, at the level of what a small aircraft might fly. The light was much smaller than the moon would appear, but much larger than a normal star or planet. The light was stationary for about 15 seconds, with no sound. Then it faded quickly and instantaneously reappeared in a different location not far from where it was originally seen but far enough that it could not have been an airplane and reappear that quickly. The light was just suddenly bright again, lasted another 10 to 15 seconds and faded quickly again. We waited, but saw nothing further.
