Location: Charleston, SC
Shape: Sphere
Duration:4 minutes
sphere with red glow within and bright orange light beneath, chased by helicopter.

There were over a dozen of us around the fire, when the host asked, "What is that?", we all looked to see bright orange light directly above which was a perfect circle which was glowing red from within. It moved slowly and silently just above the tree line. At one point it stopped as if to decide on a new course, as soon as speculation of what it could be began there was the distinct sound of helicopters. The helicopter flew in my range of sight at tremendous speed, it had its search lights on, but pointed straight ahead rather than at the ground, it also had a large green light on its side, which I initially thought were navigation lights. the sudden appearance of the helicopter drew my eye away from the orb, when I looked back in the direction I'd last seen it there was nothing.

I have grown up here, sandwiched between the international airport and the air force base, however what I witnessed this night did not remotely resemble any craft ive seen prior.
