We were on a golfing weekend (7 of us) in the Myrtle Beach area. On Sunday, August 13, 2006, we were playing our last round at the Witch course on Highway 544, northwest of Socastee, S.C. Just before teeing off on one of the holes, me and two other people playing in our group spotted a shiny spherical object between us and the clouds. Upon observing the object, we saw that it would reflect light, then it would not...seemingly in a pattern. The object was on a steady, but not noticeab;e fast track across the sky. We did not hear a noise emmiting from the object. We were kind of in a hurry because there were people playing behind us, so we did not keep looking at it for a long period, but we did get a picture. I downloaded the picture from the camera and found the object in the picture. It was not reflecting light when the picture was snapped, but it is visible in the picture. I brought the photo into photoshop, and increased the color saturation, and the object really stands out!! I am attaching the photos. If you look at the photo, you can see a faint "aura" around it like in some other UFO photos I've seen...it also appears to be perfectly spherical.
