Duration:10 minutes
Extremely bright ball of light traveling at a high rate of speed.

After the 3 of us ladies on the way back from an airport pickup of a friend from Savanah airport, we saw a shooting star like object in the north in Bluffton, SC, on Bluffton Parkway, just over the outlet mall...

Less than a mile away, we were driving to our destination into the Moss Creek gated community north, and turning onto our street at 10 miles an hour...around 12:45 a.m.. The area is extremely dark because of the sea turtles.

A soccer ball size extremely bright object crossed directly in front of the windshield of our car, lighting up the entire area inside of our car, and the ground around the car, traveling from north of the golf course, going south, like it was following the golfing green south toward a golf course pond, and disappeared.

We were excited but not frightened!

((ADDENDUM FROM ACTUAL EYEWITNESS #1 OF 2))

Hi, Peter, my name is ((name deleted)) and I'm reporting on an incident that took place September 10, 2016. It was 1:30 am, and I was delivering a friend from the Savannah airport to Hilton Head Island area, about 1 mile from the bridges.

As we were traveling down route 278 about 3 minutes lee from our destination, my friend in the passenger side of the car and myself who was driven by both spotted what we thought was a shooting star, heading right toward the area of our destination. We both saw it at the same time, and dismissed seed it as just a shooting star. It didn't seem to be quite as high as a normal star though, as I recollect.

We continued into moss creek area and got our pass to enter the plantation area. We continued on three the winding roads and turned a sharp right onto our street. About 1/8 mile on all of a sudden from our right side of my car no higher then my eye level threw the windshield came a soccer ball of bluefish white
