A South Carolina witness at Irmo reported watching a green glowing object with a trail moving along at the treetop level, according to testimony in Case 83129 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside taking a walk at 8:43 p.m. on April 12, 2017, when the incident occurred.
“I was looking at the clear sky with stars hoping to see a meteor shower,” the witness stated. “I then noticed a small, glowing object coming over the horizon at treetop level. The object glowed green with the outline pulsing and seemed to have a white, smoky trail visible in the street lights.”
The witness noted that the object came in from the northwest directly overhead and disappeared over the treetops.
“I was unable to get my phone camera working in time, but immediately after the object was beyond visible range, used my phone compass to get a location fix and azimuthal direction: Location 34°7'15"N, 81°9'45" heading 113°SE, visible for five seconds. Object seemed to leave a trail, but no lingering exhaust or smoke remained in its wake. There was no sound.”
South Carolina MUFON State Director Cheryl Ann Gilmore and Field Investigator Charles Beers closed this case as an Unknown UAV.
