Location: Beaufort, SC
Shape: Circle
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
Unexplained light in Beaufort, SC sky.

I was standing outside my house talking to a relative when a very large, bright, white light passed through the sky in the east behind my house. It moved quickly and disappeared behind the tree line. My relative is much shorter than me and from their position was unable to glimpse the object.

It is also worth noting that there is a Marine Corps training depot and air station in the area.

It was silent at the time with no helicopters or airplanes around.

An investigation of meteor activity showed that sightings of meteors were lightly unlikely due to lunar patterns.
