Location: St. Stephen, SC
Shape: Flash
Duration:10 minutes
Activity, many crafts, in South Carolina..including Jets

Looking directly to the north of the property, I called my wife and my son outside. There were 4 flashing lights in the northerly direction heading east-north-east. As we all watched, a large orb lit in the northeast for about two seconds. It was easily 10 times brighter than anything in the sky. It disappeared and the blinking lights continued heading that direction. There is no moon tonight at this time and,extremely clear.

As an aside, when I originally left my home, ..from the east I could hear jets heading up the coast of South Carolina from Charleston towards Myrtle Beach.

My son and I looked at the lights that I described for around 15 minutes. My daughter headed to her home 15 miles away in fear to be near to her husband. My wife remained with us intermittently. We tried to get something on video after the fact, when a light showed up to the east, and remained there, but could catch nothing on camcorder.

Jets were present after the lights appeared and observed them during this period. I have no doubt about this fact. My son was amazed completely by what he was seeing.
