|Strange shaped aircraft sighted then disappeared.
Observed what appeared to be a possible AF awax ((sic. AWACS)) aircraft in the sky above the on the Cooper River, flying north. Strange shape and appeared smaller than normal awax but perspective was from rear.
Then noted same craft in airspace flying east. Grabbed binoculars from desk and focused in. Strange shape noted from unsupported view. Shifted binoculars to support with elbow to try and reaquire craft in field of vision, but craft had disappeared both on bingo and naked eye. Almost like vanished.
Should not be possible given wide field of vision from window.
Sky was clear.
