Location: Greer, SC
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
I was standing on my porch looking and as soon as I looked in the sky I saw an orange fireball. It appeared as though it was there before I looked at the sky. I stared at it for a good minute before it just dissappeared. It looked like a candle being blown out. Not even 30 seconds after the fireball dissappeared I saw at least 4 military jets flying towards the location of the fireball.

My uncle is a pilot and he was standing there with me and said that they were flying way too fast to be civilian airplanes.

We were both in a state of shock afterwards.
