Further Description of Sighting: My friend & I were in his backyard skywatching. His property is south of North AFB, SC, where they train transport pilots, so we frequently watch planes as well as stars. That night, about 9, what at first looked like a very large shooting star appeared about 45-50 degrees high in the sky, going south to north.

As it went by, we both agreed that it looked like it had a cigar-shaped structure with flames coming off the nose. From frequent observation of plane traffic from there, we concluded the object, whatever it was, had to be supersonic, but there was absolutely no noise.

It could have been a meteor, but it seemed close enough so that one would’ve heard a sonic boom if it was just a meteor. We paid attention to media reports for the next few days, and then the next Tuesday we heard that NASA had released a statement saying that lights in the sky that had been reported on the east coast were due to their activities at Wallops Island, Virginia.

Whatever this was, it wasn’t shot from Virginia, as we saw it northbound in South Carolina. We thought it very strange that local media didn’t have any mention of it, as it was very large and bright.
