Location: Summerville, SC
Shape: Triangle
Duration:20 min
Triangular shape with lights in a V, no sound, very slow moving.

I was driving towards my house and noticed a bright orange light in the distance barely above the treetops. It seemed stationary as I drove toward it. I thought it must be a tower or a planet because of the orange light. When I got home, my yard faced the direction of the light and I told my mother to come outside and look at this light that I've been watching for five to seven minutes. We came outside, and about five minutes later, the light began to get larger as it was moving toward us. My mother and I constantly asked each other "What is that" and we felt all giddy inside. I've grown up near an Air Force base and have seen plenty of flying objects butntohing like this! As it came closer, it made no noise. It passed directly overhead very slowly, and had five lights arranged in a V shape on its underside. It never made a sound. It seemed to be barely above the treetops and bigger than a house by far.
