The witness was first alerted to spheres overhead and then saw the triangle-shaped object.
A South Carolina witness reports watching 10 spheres "moving erratically with flashing white lights and a low flying triangle-shaped object, according to January 26, 2012, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The reporting witness was first alerted to the objects by a phone call from a friend who lived 20 miles away.
"I went outside and to the west I saw about 10 spheres moving erratically with flashing white lights," the witness stated. "These lights moved in all directions including around each other. The night sky was so clear it was only the second time I was able to see Milky Way with bare eyes."
The witnesses' wife joined him outside and two minutes later they observed another object.
"She pointed out a large triangle-shaped object with three lights on each tip. The object was only a quarter-mile above the ground and it was traveling very slowly and noiseless."
The witness described the object's movement.
"We watched this triangle continue its path due west and after five minutes or more, just as it was almost out of sight, it began returning in our direction and passed by my house again now to my north watching it for a total of 15 minutes."
There appeared to be additional witnesses pursuing the craft as this witness reports unusual activity on his street.
"I live on a dead end street and had people on my road trying to chase it down. Just as I lost sight of it for the first time, it was about to go over the ocean. At my house here we are lucky to have a very good unobstructed view for miles in all directions without trees even interfering. We live on a dead end road with only three homes past mine and the road is not finished yet because it has not been developed. The only cars to pass my house daily are the people living on my road, but while this was going on, at one point, had 11 vehicles turning around."
The events were followed by helicopter traffic in the area.
"We did not hear noise or smells. Twenty minutes after losing site of everything, I began to hear helicopters around my area. I went back outside and saw three helicopters with one other one that was quite large - and appeared to be using a spotlight."
