Posted: 9/21/2017
Location: Spartanburg, SC
Shape: Sphere
Duration:8-10 minutes
S.C. upstate. red orb/, sphere, low flying, no sound, not descending. not a fireball.

The object was moving low and steady from southwest to northeast at apprx. 9:30 p.m eastern standard in Spartanburg South Carolina, at an altitude similar to local emergency and news helicopters, so much lower than most commercial flights.

A steady glow of red (no blinking ), sometimes I thought it was not solid just a red sphere, but as it passed over to the north, I thought I saw a fin/airfoil on the bottom. It was moving fast but not extreme, but no sound at all, the whole viewing lasted about 8 minutes .

I was on my back patio, but ran through the house to continue looking at it as it went on to the horizon where I lost it in the tree line. I have an open mind but I was seriously shaking.
