I was driving to Fort Gordon's hunting area and looked up to find the position of the moon when I noticed a bright orb hovering over the NSA complex and I realized it wasn't an airplane because there was no contrail and it descended straight down and vanished. What made me first notice the object was it was so bright and the sky was clear so there was no mistaking that there was something in the sky. When I first saw it I thought it was a flare but it was stationary and didn't moved so I ruled that out then I thought it could be exhaust from an airplane but after I didn't see any airplanes in the area I ruled that out. The object was a bright white orb of light that hovered for a while then it descended and vanished. I felt at the time that this couldn't have been happening so I started looking around to see if anyone else was observing this. I lost sight when the object just vanished.
