Location: Charleston, SC
Shape: Circle
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I was sitting on a deck of a hotel facing the ocean. Not many people around and very few lights were on. I was facing the ocean and saw a light from my left and thought it was an airplane. It traveled across the sky in a straight line and stopped in front of where I was sitting. It was not really close but it definitely was not far away - maybe a few hundred feet. Once the object/light was directly in front of me it stood still and then very fast went straight out towards the ocean. It was incredibly fast and I was very confused at what I saw. A few minutes later the exact same thing happened again. This time I took a picture of the object while it was travelling away from me. The only thing I could tell was that it was a light - I could not see any kind of body with the light. Also, I don't think there was any noise with it but I can't remember.

I told my family about this event when it happened and just yesterday I read the articles about the Navy pilots that experienced object sky over the East coast. I wanted to report this in case you want to see the pic. It isn't a great pic but is shows a red ball of light.
