Iíve been driving trucks for 37 years and I have seen strange things before but never like this.
I was traveling east on hwy 301 between Orangeburg and Santee SC when I observed six dull white lights arranged in a circular fashion with two in the middle. It was cloudy and I couldnít see the object, just the lights. There were no blinking red or green lights. Iím aware that area has Shaw Air Force base and Mcentire Air Force base close by. I first thought it was military as Iíve observed night maneuvers before but all the aircraft had the red and green blinking lights . It was hovering to my south approximately 700-800 feet above the ground. I observed this for approximately 5 minutes when it tilted right to a 45 degree angle and disappeared right before my eyes. It couldíve turned off the lights but that seemed strange and thatís what made me think this thing isnít military. As I was driving I continued to look south and I never saw it again.
