Location: Simpsonville, SC
Shape: Triangle
Duration:20 seconds
Points of lights in the formation of a triangle spotted in Greenville county South Carolina.

I had stepped outside of my house and lit a cigarette. I had seen something in the sky out of the corner of my eye and I looked up and saw 3 yellowish orange solid lights in the formation of a triangle just sitting there and not moving at all.

I then moved to my right a little bit to get out of the range of a tree and it slowly started moving upwards in a diagonal direction for about 3 seconds. Next as I stared at it, it got faster and faster for about 5 seconds and suddenly disappeared.

It was definitely much faster than an airplane or helicopter. I then looked up for about a minute and saw nothing but a few stars.

Finally I ran inside my neighbor's house to tell them and we called the hotline.
