South Carolina witness describes landed sphere UFO

A South Carolina witness at Marion reported watching a sphere-shaped UFO on the ground that “lifted off and started moving away” about 10:30 p.m. on September 2, 2015, according to testimony in Case 70131 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The case was investigated by South Carolina Field Investigator Jeffrey Elliott and State Director Cheryl Ann Gilmore and closed as an Unknown.

Investigators stated that the witness was on the telephone when the object was first observed looking out a living room window. The witness observed the object on the ground. The witness was unable to get video footage at this time because he was so excited about what he was seeing.

The report states that the witness then went outside and walked to within about 100 feet of the object.

“It lifted off and started moving away,” investigators stated. “As it rose and moved away the color changed to a red-ish-orange.  It continued toward Wilmington, NC, and then stopped and made a right angle turn followed by the second object identical in nature.”

The witness included seven images in the report filed September 4, 2015: Image 1, Image 2, Image 3, Image 4, Image 5, Image 6 and Image 7.
