Location: Goose Creek, SC
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 45 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Unidentified craft lit by dull orange light seemed to wobble silently through the sky.

I saw what I thought was a child's balloon that had flown away. It was lit by a dull orange light and seemed to wobble through the sky. I quickly realized that it was moving much too fast to be a balloon. Before I could judge size or distance, it was already out of sight.

It flew roughly south to north and two conventional aircraft were visible in the sky at the same time. The unidentIfied aircraft made no sound.
