Location: Greenville area, SC
Shape: Light
Duration:3-4 hrs
Red, blue and white lights seen hovering in the sky in the vicinity of the Anderson/Greenville area on 10/1/11 and 10/4/11.

While preparing to leave for work for my family's company, my mother walked outside of her and my father's house to walk the dog around the yard. As I was walking toward the work truck, my mother became frantic saying she could see a blinking light in the sky. I walked over and looked to where she was pointing and saw a red blue and red light in the night sky. At first, I thought it was a star, but it was blinking in a sporadic manner. I then called for my father to come look. His initial reaction was that it was a plane. The lights, however, did not move, just hovered. Our next reaction was that it was a helicopter, but it stayed aloft for too long and was too high for a helicopter to hover from. Plus, there was no discernible noise coming from it that we could hear. My father, as a sceptic went to grab his binoculars to try and identify what it was. When each of us looked through it, the lights seemed to be moving in a circular pattern. I tried to explain this away saying that my hands were shaking, but both my parents said it was mving in a circle when they looked, too.

After about 15 minutes, my parents went inside and I went to leave for work. As I was pulling out of the driveway, though, I thought I saw 3 orange dots. I'm not sure, because when I looked back a second time, I didn't see them. Four hours later, when I brought the truck back, I again saw the flashing light in the sky.

On October 4, 2011 at approximately 03:45, I saw the light for a third time.
