Reported: 2/18/2000 21:57
Posted: 3/4/2003
Location: Dillon, SC
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 minutes
Very bright light with flaring out particles. long trail behind it. no pulsation of lights, just a bright steady white light, as if a comet...

white"hot looking" object in southeastern sky. very large flare out of particles to the right of object. object heading east. long trail of white material seen glowing behind the object. this was after dark, it was very dark outside and this lit up the sky. the trail behind the object glowed a bit, too. after about 2 minutes, the triangle slowly got smaller and smaller, the flare got thinner, then it was gone. However, the glowing trail could be observed, looking like a "glowing worm" for at least a few minutes longer. Then nothing but pitch black sky could be seen. There was no sound at all. No vibration at all. and no electrical problems were noticed. This was seen from a car as we drove past the I-95 bridge and went towards the coast. I am e-mailing a map of the area for clarification. I am a registered nurse. I have never seen such an object in my life. My mother also saw this and even drew a pictue of it when we reached our destination. There was a nearby airport; perhaps they could have seen this on their radar. Whatever it was was burning up, slowly, as it traveled.
