UFO Sighting Report


June, 2008


Folly Beach, South Carolina, United States


Dark triangular-shaped object over the ocean with brightest lights I'd ever seen at the corners. It disappeared and a few seconds later an explosion happened where the object had been. Bright lights then reappeared blinking on and off, one by one, in a giant V shape across the ocean.

Date Reported:

5/15/2016 10:19:58 PM

Sighting Time: 

10:00 pm



No. of Witnesses: 



10 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The first object was, what appeared to be, the size of a very large airplane with 3 bright white lights at the corners. The later V formation lights were a few miles wide and high.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

The plane was maybe a mile or so away, low enough that it looked like it was preparing to land.

Description of Area / Surroundings

It was a quiet night at the beach with very little activity. There is a military base and airport nearby, but it disappeared before landing.

Full Description & Details

I was vacationing in Folly Beach SC, sitting on the porch with my husband at an oceanfront beach house, looking out at the ocean. It was a very calm night with almost no breeze. I noticed what I thought was an aircraft coming in for a landing. Being a former flight attendant, I watched it for a long time thinking it was an odd flight plan, and I noticed the lights on the corners were incredibly bright. As it got closer and closer I wondered if it was military or private because it seemed to be very large and triangular in shape. I didn't think much about it, but after about 10 minutes of it coming closer to the coast, it was maybe a mile away, and it disappeared instantly.

A few seconds later, what looked like a huge explosion occurred where the craft had been and something shot off sideways, but no sound and no falling debris. All went dark again and a minute or so later, those same incredibly bright white lights appeared over the ocean blinking on and off, one at a time, forming a giant V shape a few miles wide this time, facing the beach. There were probably 10 lights on each side. When the last light completed the V, they all disappeared. My husband witnessed this as well.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No, especially with the explosion and synchronized lights. Also the lights were very bright but not blinding. I've never seen light that looked like that.

Witness Background

My husband and I both have masters degrees. I'm a licensed psychotherapist and have 3 children. I don't want any attention, it's just something I've thought about for awhile and wish I had reported it back then.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have always been skeptical, but open to other possibilities.
