Location: Hilton Head Island, SC
Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 minutes
Orange object moving rapidly through the sky. It then moved up and down rapidly before coming to a stop and soon disappearing completely. A couple minutes later it reappeared with a dimmer, darker orange color; almost red to part of it. At this point it was slowly moving and the object began to drop what looked like molten pieces down off of it. As we watched, it then moved rapidly down before coming to a stop again and becoming very dim and darker red, occasionally dropping more molten-looking objects from it. After only a few more minutes it then disappeared again. We did not spot it any more after the second disappearance.
