Location: Daufuskie Island (off coast of), SC
Shape: Other
Duration: 1-2 minutes
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
My husband and I were looking over the pool area into the sky around 9PM and suddenly there was a bright tail (like fireworks) over the sky (maybe a surface to air missle?) with it lasting only seconds, then it broke into a whitish haze that was wedge shaped which the haze lingered for awhile and then disappeared. There appeared to be some aircraft in the area at the time.

((NUFORC Note: We assume that the witness describes above the launch of a Titan IV missile out of Cape Canaveral, which occurred at 20:55 hrs. (Eastern) on this date. The missile apparently was launched to the northeast, so it was visible along the eastern shoreline of the U. S.. PD))
