Noticed a reddish circular object in the sky that appeared at to be moving and then seemed to hover.

My husband and I were walking the beach and we saw a reddish orange sphere in the sky that seemed to be moving and then began to hover in one place. We both took photos and video of the object. When we returned to our vacation rental house, I searched the Internet for any strange sightings of unidentified flying objects on Kiawah Island, SC. Internet search returned news articles and video footage of an object that appeared identical to the one we saw tonight (9/15/22). The previous unidentified flying object had been witnessed on 12/31/18 and there is video footage available online of this object. It seemed the object we saw vaguely changed colors (red to orange to yellow to white), the object seemed to change shapes from three small close connected spheres to one large sphere, it changed from a sphere to a more diamond looking shape then changed back to three small close spheres and then back again into one large sphere multiple times while we observed it. My husband and I both felt a “need” to observe the object. We felt transfixed by the object, it was difficult to stop staring at the object. We also noticed what appeared to be three planes and a helicopter forming a triangular shape and flying toward the object. I have heard two helicopters flying over our vacation rental since returning from the beach. The object seemed to pulsate at times.
