Red fireball UFOs over South Carolina in controlled flight to a northerly direction seen south of ColumbiaOn the night of March 28, 2009 I was driving on I26 going west, just south of Columbia, South Carolina. I had just spent an hour at a roadside rest area and slept for an hour before continuing on my trip. Not long after continuing my drive, suddenly I saw what looked like a circular shaped glowing ball of fire. About the size of a Frisbee it flew in toward me out of the western sky. In the total darkness, I could not judge how high up it was.I marveled at it as it flew directly overhead and followed it threw my sun roof. I did not think of it as a UFO because I kept thinking about how this thing resembled a bright red and orange amber in a fire. The inside of the circle sparkled with white flashes as the orange color graduated to a cooler red at the perimeter. The outside of the circle was not well defined and wavered slightly. I did not think of it as a UFO because I had a preconception, from what I so often have heard, that UFOs are glowing white lights in the sky at night. I also never really believed that there were such things as UFOs.As fast as I could, I crossed over two lanes on the interstate, stopped on the side, opened the sun roof, and stuck my head out to continue looking at this fireball. To my surprise I saw yet another similar object approaching from the east on a collision course with the first. When they were relatively close to each other, they both made sharp turns to the north. They continued flying in formation until they disappeared in the horizon. I was driving a hybrid car so the car engine was completely silent and no traffic was on the highway at this moment. Yet I could not detect any noise from these objects in the sky. I have seen thousands of aircraft in the sky and live near an airport, so there is no mistaking these items for airplanes.Shortly after these items had disappeared into the horizon, I witnessed what I thought at first was a shooting star. However, as I thought about it, it dawned on me that this could not have been a coincident. This beam of light, coming from space, intersected the pathway of the two flying objects. It appeared to me that if this beam of light had appeared ten, fifteens seconds earlier, it would have been right on top of these objects or even possibly hit one of them.It is also worth noting that these UFOs were in this geographic location on the same day that the shuttle landed at Cape Kennedy. The shuttle landed at 3:14 pm and this sighting occurred at 11:45 pm. I realize that these occurrences are many hours apart, but never the less it is on the same day and only a few hundred miles apart.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information.
