Gold, non moving light in sky that vanished completely over river near Charleston

Was driving home to North Charleston from Mt. Pleasant on the 526 or Mark Clark expressway and saw a dim gold sphere in the sky. I always watch the skies around here and have seen some pretty strange things before. It wasn't moving at all and then it completely vanished right where it was with no light, nothing but black sky to be seen. Very errie to be watching something motionless over the river for a few seconds then have it vanish right before your eyes. Almost unworldly. Just the night before I was out sky watching because a relative came home and said they saw a falling star. I drove out and saw two from a downtown park and believe these are a result of the genemid meteor activity here recently. And recently in our Charleston papers, there was a story about the mysterious boom sounds of the east coast. We learn that they have been happening for over a hundred years with no explanation yet.
