Location: Columbia, SC
Shape: Circle
Duration:1 hour
Four circles of light spottwd in the sky creating a 1 and 1/4 rotation before converging on a central point.

Tonight at around 9:30 my mother called for me on the porch, she stated that there were some "strange lights". Naturally I went out and there in the sky was 4 circles of light. They seemed to very carefully and precisely make a 1 and 1/4 loop before converging into a single mass at their center. This behaviour continued for an hour or so before they just vanished. At first we assumed that it had been spotlights but after investigation found no evidence of an origin for the lights on the ground.

Even more shockingly after this incident I sent my footage to a friend who lives about 6 miles from me. He in turn went outside and recorded the exact same light pattern I had. Neither of us could figure out what was causing this as no origin could be seen coming from the ground.

Both me and my friend are juniors in high-school. I myself am color-blind to a degree. I have never been one to jump to calling something a UFO but what I saw tonight was not normal at all.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the witness was observing a rotating advertising light. PD))
