Shape: Disk
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
saucer like object across the horizon 8:15pm southern sky, south carolina

myself, my wife, infant daughter, and two friends from wales had just left el a mexican restaraunt. we were all in the car when i said, "look at that." it was after dusk, but before all light was gone. i thought that it might be a shooting star, but as i tried to explain the direction and what i was talking about, it arced and disappeared into the tree line. no one else i was with saw it. i couldn't believe it, i got out of the car and just said "holy shit... holy shit." it was a cliched as thing as one could imagine. a saucer shaped object looked like it was made out of some brushed metal like aluminum. it was not herky-jerky, it moved smoothly and uniformly across the horizon. i followed it until it was out of sight. i used the compass in my car to determine that the object was in the southern sky.

it sounds ridiculous and if i was going to make something up, i would have not descibed the thing to look like a "saucer" of all things.

i have a college degree in photography and english and am an executive in the music industry. i am reasonable person who would normally dismiss such a thing.
