See also

Three South Carolina family members traveling north along Highway 17 near McClellanville reported watching a triangle-shaped object with lights hovering just above nearby tree tops about midnight on February 13, 2014, according to testimony in Case 54065 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The reporting witness was traveling with her mother and sister after leaving Charleston earlier in the evening when the object was first observed.

"I was looking out from the right side passenger window when the object seemed to have stopped moving and hovered in one spot for about a minute," the reporting witness stated.

The family pulled off to the side of the road for a better look.

"At this time I have not taken my eyes off this object. And out of nowhere the object disappeared."

The witness cannot account for what they saw.

"It was a clear and cold night driving on the coast and I wanted to add that this object was very close to a cell tower as well."

No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on February 14, 2014. McClellanville is a small fishing town in Charleston County, SC, population 459. South Carolina has a UFO Alert Rating of 4 with a higher than average number of recent reports nationally. South Carolina was the 15th highest reporting state with 15 reports in January 2014 - while California had 102 reports - the highest reporting state in the nation.
