Location: Pendleton, SC
Shape: Sphere
Duration:
White light vanished as it moved across sky.

10:15PM. Clear, dry weather conditions, little or no wind. Humidity level was very low, as a weather system cleaned out the humidity several hours earlier. Stars were visable in every direction. I saw what would have looked like an extremely bright star move across the sky from SW to NE. It was approximately 10X brighter than the brightest star, and moved in a straight line. I witnessed this for about 20 seconds. It was much slower than any meteorite and moved about the speed of a jet. There were no blinking lights, and after 20 seconds, it dimmed, then dissapeared. When it disappeared, there were no clouds in the sky, and I could see stars in every direction around where it vanished. It was extremely bright before this happened, and there was no noise whatsoever. It was whitish to a faint blue in color.
