My husband & I went out on our deck and saw 6-7 orange/yellow spheres in a group floating in sky.


I just wanted to give you a little more information about what my husband and I saw on New Year’s night. We were watching the ball drop in NY on TV. At midnight we watched the broadcasters hugging etc. at midnight. We could hear a lot of fireworks going off in our neighborhood ever since it got dark so we went to our back deck (The Wando River is North West with Daniel Island behind it).

It was about 5 minutes past midnight. Our deck is on a march that feeds into the Wando River. All of our neighbors have decks on the marsh and I would think that a lot of them were on them that night but I haven’t asked them if they saw anything. .

We saw some fireworks that looked like they were coming from across the Wando from the Northeast. We then just started looking at the sky (we have a wide view from the deck). We both noticed the “orbs” at the same time. They were sort of in a circle-ish grouping. I mean not a perfect circle but floating like a group. They were kind of bobbing around but they stayed together and they floated at the same altitude. They were bright round orbs. At first they looked just bright white but then they seemed to be blinking or pulsing yellowish-orange. We both spotted them at the same time and said jokingly “aliens”. But then we both thought it was from the fireworks and would disappear. But they didn’t disappear.

They seemed to be going west and seemed to be over the Wando River. They floated off together and disappeared behind a cloud. We tried to figure out what they were? They were too low to be aircraft? We thought maybe Boeing was testing some new kind of drone or something since there has been so much talk of drones and airspace below 500 feet?

My husband and I spend a lot of time outside. We have been sailing in many places where the view of the sky is awesome and clear. We have seen falling stars, satellites, planes, etc. But we have never seen these “orb” things. I did report this to MUFON because that was what came up when I googled UFO reporting. I read some of the other MUFON reports and thought it was weird that so many other people were seeing the same type of thing all over the country that night and some of their videos look a lot like what we saw. I would just like to know what they were? Hope this is helpful

Best regards,
