White light in North Charleston, SC

On July 4 2010 I was in the hospital in Trident Medical Center in North Charleston, SC, watching fireworks out of a window, looking towards Charleston Southern University, which is across the street. It was sometime between 9PM and 10PM.

I noticed a bright white light, in the direction NWN, about two fists above the horizon, not much higher than the fireworks going off all over the horizon. I guess it was two or a few times brighter than Venus, and seemed to be stationary, maybe moving a little bit. My guess was that it was a helicopter less than a mile from me, coming in to the hospital - except that it never came. I watched it for a few minutes, maybe 5-10, but it didn't change appreciably in any way. Then it just kind of disappeared. I assumed it was a plane or helicopter that turned a different direction, but I never saw one.

It seemed a little strange. I assumed (and still think it's likely) that it was a plane or helicopter, but considering the numerous reports that night, I have decided to make this report.
