Location: Ocean Isle Beach, SC
Shape: Disk
Duration:8.50seconds
The saucer shone in the sun ,defied gravity, whirred & angled out to sea ,at leasure&then at fantastic speed.

I was standing facing North in front of a brown wooden beach shack store when all of a sudden I happened to look up to the right , which is East all at the same time I heard a whirring sound like current in electrical lines at millions of volts. I saw an silver disk hoovering about 3 1/8 of my hands held up with the bottom of my hand equal to the breakers on the shore. It was about 100 feet in distance from the shore out across the water in the Eastern not very cloudy blue sky. The object appeared to be 4 1/2 fingers thick , held vertically, and tapered down to a left sharp edged saucer and also on the right side tapered down to a right sharp edged saucer sort of like when you put two china plates with the tops on top of each other held horizontally only thicker in the middle.I only saw one saucer flying off in a south-easterly direction slowly at first then gaining speed.The time it took to leave was to count to 18 taking normal counts not in a hurry and by the twenty & the twenty-third count it was gone into thin air way off South-east of myself and a fellow witness.I said to him, "Did you see that?,"Or am I crazy!" Then he replied, " No youre not crazy cause I saw it too ,dont worry about it."
