Object Flight Path
I was driving home from the grocery store on Saturday july 5 on 526 north in charleston sc.
Just as I came to my exit which is a downward ramp with a circle turn I glanced up at the horizon and noticed 3 bright lights. I would say they were white with maybe a bit of a yellow hue.
They were small in the distance which I anticipated was still above the freeway but closer to montage or airport rd near the charleston airport. Although near the airport this would not be over the runway but maybe in a landing path. Still they were not apparently "heading to the airport" but seemed like they were stationary or moving north if anything.
Also, although small I know from the distance they had to be quite large. In addition they were on a perfect downward slant to the right. If it was on paper you could connect the dots in a straight line (downward angle).
I thought could they be a plane lights? However, they were not blinking and way too far away from eachother to be a plane, Or even three planes in a line. Planes don't even take off in that distance and I would estimate these were at least 2-300 yards or more away from eachother. They had to be at that distance in my view.
At this point-ony maybe 5-6 seconds I had to make the exit or run off the road as I began to exit all three lights went out disappeared at the same time. This further made me think I was seeing something unordinary.
When I got bak on the road at glen mcconnel my view was obstructed by trees and I could not see anything else.
