Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
On November 23, 2008 I saw a blinking orange light in the sky that hovered for a few minutes and then disappeared.

On the night of November 23, 2008 my girlfriend and I were on our way to her house after leaving a restaurant in Summerville, SC. I looked up and saw this blinking orange light in the sky at about 8pm. I know that it wasn’t a light from an airplane because I've grown up looking at planes and know what their running and landing lights look like. This light was a lot bigger than any you'd ever see on a plane and it was blinking at a lot slower pace than that of plane lights. As a matter of fact at the same time I could see a plane off in the distance and was watching both things at once. The blinking orange light seemed to be standing still while I could see the plane moving across the sky towards it. I then ended up driving under where the light was and I could see that it was actually moving straight up. At this point I thought it may be a rocket launched by NASA or something, but I checked NASA's launch schedule and their last launch had been on the 14th and wasn’t due back until the 30th. When we got to her house it was gone, had disappeared
