There were about a dozen of us around the fire tonight when mid sentence the host stopped and asked "whats that", we all looked to see a bright orange light above which was a perfect circle which seemed to glow red from the inside, it moved over our heads stopping twice, i found it beautiful and then seemingly upon the approach of the helicopter it vanished. My eyes were drawn away for a moment by the bright search beam and green navigation lights of the helicopter. When I looked back in the direction I had last seen the red orb it was gone. The stark contrast between the beautiful silent movements of the orb and the screaming loud helicopter left me in awe. Ive grown up here, I see a helicopter in flight weekly, and I see the Charleston air force base planes hourly. Nothing I have seen prior even remotely resembled what I witnessed this night.
