Two South Carolina sisters reported watching a "huge, round craft with flashing lights" that silently hovered low over their Goose Creek subdivision about 8:10 p.m., March 4, 2013, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The reporting witness was inside when her 27-year-old sister yelled to come outside quickly. The woman said she took care of the children first and was outside in less than three minutes.
"There was a low hovering, huge, round (or oval) craft of some sort, with flashing lights of yellow, red, and green, and it hovered in total silence," the witness stated. "It was not overhead, but seemed like it was very, very close. It was over our subdivision. It appeared to be some kind of really, big craft."
The two watched as the craft moved quickly away.
"We watched it for a while talking about the flashing lights and what it could possibly be, and then it turned in silence and then flew away seemingly at the speed of light. No light trails or anything. It just turned as it hovered and flew away! Fast. Flew away fast and out of sight."
The two were upset at what they saw.
"This was abnormally large, hovered in silence. It did have lights that flashed. It was solid. It sped away very quickly! It made us feel creepy and a little scared. Confused. Excited that we saw something we couldn't identify."
No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on March 4, 2013. Goose Creek is a city in Berkeley County, SC, population 35,938.

March 4, 2013, 8:10 p.m., Goose Creek, Berkeley County, SC - HUGE round craft with flashing lights, hovered in CREEPY SILENCE then turned and sped away; yellow, red, greens lights flashed. Case 46030.
My sister (27-years old) was at my house. She ran inside and told me to come see "this thing quick," she didnt know what it was!
It was still there after I put down the kids and went outside. Total time it hoovered was a couple minutes; maybe 2-3.
There was a low hovering, HUGE ROUND (or oval) craft of some sort, with flashing lights of yellow, red, and green, and it hoovered in total silence.
It was not overhead, but seemed like it was very very close. It was over our subdivision. It appeared to be some kind of really, big craft.
We watched it for a while talking about the flashing lights and what it could possibly be, then it turned in silence and then flew away seemingly at the speed of light. No light trails or anything it just turned as it hoovered and flew away! FAST. FLEW AWAY FAST out of sight.
I called my Father immediately to tell him what we just saw! My stepmother Laurel LaFlamme said we at least need to report this to someone and shes transcribing this email to you right now!
We are NOT crazy. This "thing" was right in front of us. I have no clue whether it was north or south of what the directionalilty was. It was night, a little after 8pm EST in Goose Creek, South Carolina!
Weve never seen anything like that before. My sister and I agree weve never seen anything in the sky we could not identify; like a plane, shooting star.
This was abnormally large, hoovered in silence, it did have lights that flashed, it was solid, it sped away VERY quickly!
It made us feel creepy and a little scared. Confused. Excited that we saw something we couldnt identify. Was it a true UFO or some Charleston Air Force Base craft gone astray? We have no clue!
Thats about it.
