Floating, hovering object in sky that ascended and eventually disappeared.

As my family and I were returning home from dinner, I observed an object in the sky with lights around the edge of the object, giving it a disk like appearance. I was heading SW on Three Bridges Rd, in a rural area between the cities of Greenville and Anderson, South Carolina.

I first saw the object through a clearing of trees that line the road, directly in front of me. It appeared to be at least a couple of miles away, maybe 500-1000 ft in the air. There was an airplane that passed by in the vicinity, but this object was stationary, almost like it may have been hovering. I tracked it with my eyes as much as I safely could while driving to see if it moved at all.

Having grown up bird and duck hunting, I used trees and other objects in the sky to try and triangulate the location as best as possible. The object wasn’t moving. I then approached an area that is heavily wooded and blocked the line of sight I had on the object.

When I came out of the area, I saw the object in the same location, then all of a sudden, it quickly ascended in the sky to the point it disappeared.

During the duration of the time I saw the object, I had feeling or sense like I was being watched by something or someone.
